Man tortured, assaulted during horrific ordeal at Gold Coast home

A man has been charged over the alleged horrific assault and torture of another man on the northern Gold Coast across the Easter long weekend.

Police said the victim, a 30-year-old man, attended a home in Upper Coomera on Sunday, April 4, where he was allegedly assaulted in the front yard.

He was then taken to a home in Eagleby, where he was allegedly tortured with a hammer, gas burner and knife.


The man managed to escape the home the following morning and was able to seek medical help.

Thankfully, he did not sustain any life-threatening injuries.

Following investigations, Taskforce Maxima detectives executed a warrant at a home in Redbank Plains on Thursday, where a 38-year-old Eagleby man was arrested.

He has since been charged with four counts of assault occasioning bodily harm and two counts of armed robbery and deprivation of liberty.

He was also charged with one count each of torture, possessing dangerous drugs and utensils.

The man was granted police bail to appear in Beenleigh Magistrates Court on April 30.

Investigations are continuing.

How is he allowed out on bail being such a violent crime? He should be kept locked up!

I agree. Absolutely ridiculous that such a person could be released on bail. Is he a danger to the public? Does he have mental health problems? Or was this a revenge attack on someone equally disturbed that the police and courts decided deserved justice? No point in giving us half a story that only causes fear and concern for people thinking there is a dangerous person at large.
