A WODONGA man has been bashed by two of his ex-partners at the same time, with one woman spraying the victim with glass from a beer bottle during the ordeal.
The man was punched, kicked and had the windscreen of his Ford Territory smashed with his work tools during the attack on August 17 last year.
Despite the attack, the victim supported one of the women - Cindy Sinclair - in Wodonga Magistrates Court during her appearance on various charges.
Sinclair, a mother to about a dozen children, had broken up with the victim about five days before the incident.
The 48-year-old and another ex-partner attended his home about 8.30pm and knocked on the front door.
He answered and the pair tried to push their way past, into the home.
The pair yelled at the man for about two minutes before Sinclair began laying into him, punching him in the face.
His other ex-partner punched him several times, pulled his hair and twisted his arm.
He was left bleeding from his face and repeatedly asked the pair to stop.
Sinclair stepped back from the front door and threw an empty beer bottle towards the man.
It smashed on the door frame and showered him in glass.
The 48-year-old then targeted the man's vehicle by smashing it with a nail bag.
She used a cordless drill to smash the windscreen at least four times.
When the man tried to stop the damage, the pair attacked him again with Sinclair punching him multiple times in the head.
The pair left the scene and the incident was reported to police the following day.
Sinclair was arrested and interviewed on August 19 and told police she was "very drunk".
"I did hit him because he called me a slut," she said.
She said she didn't remember having a beer bottle in her hand.
The victim sat next to Sinclair during her recent court appearance.
Magistrate Ian Watkins said the fact the victim supported Sinclair, who has priors, didn't minimise her offending.
"I think the crux of this is you need to get your drinking under control, don't you?" the magistrate asked.
"Yep," she replied.
Mr Watkins said she would end up in prison if she didn't change her ways.
He ordered she perform 100 hours of unpaid work as part of a 12-month community corrections order.
