A man accused of attacking a woman with a knife during a domestic disturbance did not apply for bail in his first appearance in a Brisbane court.

A man who allegedly attacked a woman with a knife during a domestic disturbance will remain behind bars following a brief court appearance.

The 33-year-old tow truck driver, who can’t be named for legal reasons, didn’t apply for bail when he appeared in the Brisbane Magistrates Court on Tuesday charged with a string of offences including attempted murder.

Police say the woman sustained knife wounds to her throat and hand at a Mount Gravatt East address in Brisbane’s south about 2pm on Monday.

The man allegedly drove off in a car with her two young children.

It’s unclear whether he is their father.

He was arrested a little over two hours later after reportedly crashing the car at Oxenford on the Gold Coast and allegedly trying to steal another motorist’s car.

The woman was taken to hospital with wounds that weren’t considered to be life threatening.

Neither child was physically harmed.

The man is facing charges including attempted murder, acts intended to cause grievous bodily harm, assault, dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, unlawful entry of a motor vehicle and endangering two children by exposure.

His case was adjourned until November 10.
