Police did not oppose bail for a man charged over an alleged assault on a woman at known gang pad in Christchurch at the weekend.

Mark Thomas McKersey, 49, of Northcote, was granted a registrar's remand without plea to July 21, and did not need to appear before a judge in the Christchurch District Court.

He has been charged with assaulting the woman with intent to injure her early on Sunday.

She was found by members of the public, injured and in a distressed state, on the corner of the Main North Rd and Vagues Rd about 6.30am that day.

She told police she had been strangled until she was unconscious at a nearby gang address.

McKersey was remanded to get legal advice.
