Bradley Soper, 35, was reportedly struggling with drug addiction, a relationship breakdown and financial issues, when he broke into a Harrington Park house in Sydney’s
southwest on Sunday.
Mr Soper was disturbed by resident Johan Schwartz, 44, and the pair struggled, before the intruder collapsed and died at the scene.
Mr Schwartz was questioned by police in relation to the matter and released without charge.
Disturbing details about Mr Soper’s past have continued to emerge in the wake of his death.
Court records viewed by news.com.au today show that Alysse Bowen, a former personal training client of Mr Soper, made an application for an Apprehended Domestic Violence Order against him in February 2017.
The matter was heard in Waverley Local Court with both parties present.
Mr Soper represented himself and was ordered to not assault, threaten, stalk, harass, intimidate or destroy or damage any property that belonged to Ms Bowen.
Conditions of the 12-month order also included that he “must not approach or be in the company of Alysse Suzanne Bowen for at least 12 hours after drinking alcohol or taking illicit drugs”.
