A man charged over allegedly attempting to kill his ex-girlfriend with a kitchen knife outside a Sydney gym has fronted court wearing a chequered medical gown.

Anthony Monteleone, 45, appeared via videolink before Manly Local Court on Friday, only speaking to indicate he could see and hear proceedings. Mr Monteleone, who has dark hair and a beard, did not apply for bail during the hearing.

Police have said they believed Mr Monteleone attacked his former partner as she was leaving Crunch Fitness gym on O’Riordan Street in Alexandria in Sydney’s inner south on Tuesday in an act of domestic violence.

Mr Monteleone is alleged to have then fled in a grey Ford Focus hatchback. The woman, who was bleeding profusely from her neck, was taken to the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital.

Before Mr Monteleone was taken into custody, NSW Police asked media not to publish the name of the hospital.

The 45-year-old handed himself in at Dee Why Police Station at 7.50am on Thursday after NSW Police on Wednesday issued a public warning that they would catch him.

The North Manly resident was taken to Manly Police Station and charged with causing grievous bodily harm with the intent to murder and contravening an apprehended violence order.

Magistrate Robyn Denes said Monteleone was subject to an intensive correction order and adjourned the matter until the next appearance in the Sydney Downing Centre on July 9.
