A man has been charged with a series of domestic violence crimes, including tying up a woman and assaulting her in a forest.
The man has been charged with 14 offenses of domestic violence in southeastern Queensland, including strangulation, deprivation of liberty and assault with bodily harm.
Police allege that the Gympie man drove a woman to the Toolara Forest, where her hands were tied with a zipper and her feet were tied with twine.
The 25-year-old man then drove off before returning a short time later and cutting the woman loose.
He would then have let her walk on a dirt road for some time and then let her get back in when another car approached.

On another occasion at a Gympie home, the woman was reportedly punched in the face before being grabbed around the neck and suffocated in a headlock.
Police say the man drove the woman back into the woods on another occasion, put her in a headlock while she was in the car and strangled her.
The woman was then reportedly forced to get out of the car and sit on the dirt before being allowed back inside, where she was further beaten and assaulted.
Police have charged the man with violating domestic violence orders by contacting the woman, visiting her address, verbally abusing her in public and physically assaulting her.
The man was arrested Thursday and charged with six counts of violation of a domestic violence order, three of assault with bodily harm, two of strangulation or suffocation and one each of deprivation of liberty, theft, assault on the police and obstructing the police. .
Police have released him on bail to appear in Gympie Magistrates Court on Friday.
