A Victorian man will not spend extra time behind bars for smearing blood over the walls of a woman's house as she hid her children in cupboards to protect them.
Briley Mallia, 21, was drunk and high on drugs when he smashed the front window of the woman's house, picked up a shard of glass, and threatened to kill her at Bendigo in February.
He then smeared his own blood on the walls of the house while continuing to abuse the woman, who cannot be named.
She and her partner retreated to their bedroom and locked the door, hiding their four children in cupboards, before calling police.
Mallia fled on one of the children's bikes before he was arrested nearby, bleeding heavily.
He remained agitated when treated by paramedics, resisted handcuffing, and hit a police officer in the face before being sedated.
After being released from hospital the next day, the 21-year-old told police he couldn't remember anything and said he "felt sick" about what they said he had done.
He had been on bail for stealing a car at the time of the offence.
Mallia on Wednesday faced the Victorian County Court, where he was sentenced to 81 days in prison - the time he has already served in custody - and 150 hours of community service.
He had pleaded guilty to three charges including aggravated burglary, making a threat to kill and assaulting an officer.
Judge Rosemary Carlin said Mallia had "terrorised" the woman and her family.
"Your actions were so frightening that she grabbed her children and hid them in cupboards," Judge Carlin told him.
"Intoxication may explain your actions, but it doesn't reduce your moral culpability.
"I am hoping your experience of being arrested and going to court has been a salutary lesson."
