Around 7.30am on September 8, it is alleged a man attended a Marian Street address and assaulted a woman.
The man allegedly attended the address looking for his missing mobile phone.
The man accused the female resident of losing the mobile phone, during the evening.
It is alleged the man has then entered the woman's bedroom, holding two knives. The man has allegedly pushed the woman with both hands causing her to lose balance and fall backwards onto her bed.
It is further alleged the man has jumped on top of the victim, in an effort to stop her from using her mobile phone.
Police will allege the woman managed to break free from the man and stood up. The man has then stabbed the woman between the upper lip and nose, causing an entry wound and exposing the inside of her mouth.
The man allegedly fled the address with the woman's handbag, containing her house and car keys.
He was located by police a short time later at the rear of a nearby business.
The woman required emergency surgery in relation to a 2cm open laceration above her lip and a 2 cm laceration to her neck.
A 34-year-old Pioneer man has been charged with one count each of grievous bodily harm, common assault and stealing.
He is due to appear in the Mount Isa Magistrates Court today (September 9).
