In a statement on Sunday, NSW Police said: "Just before 1am, officers from Eastern Beaches Police Area Command attended a Randwick unit, after reports a 41-year-old woman had allegedly been assaulted in a domestic violence related incident.
"Following inquiries, police arrested a 49-year-old man nearby about 3.30am.
"He was taken to Maroubra police station where he was charged with common assault (DV) and granted conditional bail."
A source told the Daily Telegraph O'Keefe received medical treatment after the incident and will defend the charge.
O'Keefe is scheduled to appear at Waverley Local Court on Thursday, February 4.
He must not contact or approach his partner, unless through legal representation.
O'Keefe is a former lawyer, and the son of ex-NSW Supreme Court Justice Barry O'Keefe.
