The 30-year-old woman, who was the only one inside the house, was not injured.
‘‘There was a minor assault and the female fled,’’ Det. Sgt Kervin said.
‘‘Police arrived and found the man at the scene.’’
The 27-year-old Echuca man was charged with aggravated burglary, unlawful assault, criminal damage and resisting arrest.
He was remanded in custody overnight and is due to appear in Bendigo Magistrates Court today.
