A Queensland man is in custody after allegedly pouring fuel over a car with two children inside, while another has been charged with attempted murder after police say he tried to strangle a woman. 

Police were called to a Toowoomba address on Saturday morning amid reports a man was threatening a woman he knew and pouring fuel over a vehicle containing two children. 

The 34-year-old Wilsonton man was arrested and charged with three counts of acts intended to cause grievous bodily harm.

He was remanded in custody to appear at Toowoomba Magistrates Court on Monday.

His arrest came after another Queensland man was charged with attempted murder after he allegedly tried to strangle and suffocate a woman. 

Police were called to a house in the outer Brisbane suburb of Kenmore about 2.30am on Saturday, where they found the woman with injuries to her neck and hands.

Police say a man known to the woman went to the property and tried to suffocate and strangle her.

A violent struggle allegedly ensued, in which the woman was able to break free and seek refuge at a neighbouring property.

The woman, aged in her 40s, was taken to hospital in a stable condition.

Police intercepted a vehicle a short distance away and arrested a 54-year-old Taringa man.

He was charged with attempted murder, entering a dwelling with intent by break at night, and contravening a domestic violence order.

He was refused police bail and is due to appear before Brisbane Magistrates Court on Monday.
