Monga has been cleared of four of five charges after his former partner accused him of picking her up and dropping her to the ground in one of two alleged assaults against her.
The 22-year-old faced three charges of breaching a protection order and two for male assaults female, from alleged assaults on November 27 and 29 last year.
But Judge Rae found him not guilty on all charges but breaching a protection order.

He convicted Monga and ordered him to come up for sentence if called upon within the next nine months.
