A YOUNG father-of-two was affected by drugs when he stabbed, punched, stomped on and choked his partner and bashed her with a baseball bat in repeated attack over a number of days, the Supreme Court has heard.

Michael Jason Hinds, 20, of Rokeby, today pleaded guilty to four counts of assault, two counts of wounding and one of attempted wounding.

Crown Prosecutor Allison Shand told the court the charges related to a series of attacks by Hinds on his partner at their home in September last year.

The court heard that early on September 1 Hinds was angry about his welfare payments being cut off.

He picked up a knife and threw it at his partner, hitting her above the knee.

Shortly afterwards he attacked her with a metal baseball bat, striking her 10 times in the shins and subsequently hitting her in the genitals.

Later the same day he punched the young woman repeatedly in the face because she had told a neighbour about the abuse.

He started hitting her in the arms and back with the baseball bat and threatened to stab her with scissors if she tried to fend off the blows.

When she did, he stabbed her in the left thigh and tried to stab her in the left shoulder, the court heard

Hinds called her a "dirty, cheating slut" and pushed her into a wall and tried to strangle her before telling her he was going to kill everyone she loved.

A few days later, after accusing the woman of cheating, Hinds pushed her head into a brick wall repeatedly, threw her on a bed, choked, punched and stomped on her before again attacking her with a baseball bat.

Ms Shand said the woman suffered significant bruising and two stab wounds from the assaults.

Defence lawyer Amber Mignot said her client had an unstable upbringing and had started smoking cannabis at the age of nine, drinking at 11 and had used "all manner of drugs" since.

She said at the time of the offences he was under the influence of ice and amphetamines which made him paranoid and aggressive.

He had stopped taking drugs since going into jail, she said.

Justice Shan Tennent will sentence Hinds on February 22.
