Jealousy arising from the misconception another woman was having sex with her boyfriend led to Amanda Sheather brutally attacking the victim on a North Albury footpath.
Sheather failed to front Albury Local Court on Monday to answer charges relating to several matters including the assault.
That led to magistrate Rodney Brender issuing a warrant for her arrest.
Sheather, 28, was at the wheel of her four-wheel-drive on Logan Road when she saw the woman riding her bike along the path on April 29 about 12.30pm.

As the victim approached the intersection near the APCO supermarket, the court was told, Sheather pulled to the side of the road before driving in front of the woman.
The vehicle hit the front wheel of the victim's bike.
It was just enough to make her unsteady.
But Sheather didn't start the assault.
Instead, her passenger, a female friend, got out of the four-wheel-drive and walked towards the victim.
"The female punched the victim in the face and grabbed her in a headlock and got on top of the victim and punched her again," police said.
This was when Sheather stepped in, her equally violent mate beckoning her with: "Amanda, come get her."
Sheather kicked the victim a couple of times then punched her in the stomach.
The catalyst for the assault was a series of text messages the day before between Sheather and the woman.
The victim received her first text from Sheather about 9.15pm.
"It's Amanda," the text began, before delivering the threat of wanting to "destroy" the victim.
"How many times did you (have sex with) my boyfriend?" Sheather wrote, to which the victim replied: "It was not like that. We didn't have sex.
"You're so violent, maybe I should report you."
Sheather was convicted of using a carriage service to menace, harass or offend, drive recklessly or speed manner dangerous, common assault and stalk or intimidate.
