A Melbourne man kidnapped his pregnant girlfriend from a Melbourne service station by knocking her down and dragging her by the hair into his car, a court has heard.

Christopher Josevski, 24, was granted bail despite police telling the court he posed an "unacceptable risk".

Police allege Josevski knocked his girlfriend to the ground after the pair had an argument at the Derrimut Coles Express on February 23, the Melbourne Magistrates' Court heard on Tuesday.

Senior Constable Dominic Musolino told the court the pair left the store, but the woman then ran back to the store, banging on the automatic doors to be let back in.

Sen Const Musolino said after being knocked to the floor, the woman took hold of a food stand and desperately attempted to stop Josevski from pulling her towards the exit.

He said Josevski then punched the woman in the face twice before pulling her by her hair and dragging her into his car.

It was also alleged in court that police found the woman at noon that day in Josevski's caravan at his home, and also found a gun and three small cannabis plants.

Josevski was charged with kidnap, unlawful imprisonment, cause injury, possess cannabis plant, and unlawful assault.

Sen Const Musolino said he had concerns for both the woman and her unborn baby.

Josevski was granted bail under strict conditions that he live with his mother, obey a curfew, and not contact the alleged victim.

He will next appear in court on May 23.
