Four men held in custody after violent home invasion

FOUR men are being held in custody following their alleged involvement in a violent home invasion at Brookwater.

The accused men, Gak Riec, 18, Rwai Terkok, 19, Aleer Aleer, 21 and Aneet Majok, 27 have been hit with a number of charges in relation to the alleged offending.

Each of them faces four counts of assault occasioning bodily harm and one count of enter dwelling with intent, stealing and willful damage.

They had their matters heard in Ipswich Magistrates Court yesterday.

It is alleged the men went to a Brookwater Drive unit about 4.20am and gained entry into the property after the front door was opened by a woman.

One man became involved in a verbal and physical altercation with an 18-year-old male who was asleep at the time.

It will be further alleged the group of men woke other occupants of the unit, and a verbal and physical altercation ensued.

As a result of the fray, a 27-year-old man and an 18-year-old man suffered minor injuries.

The group then allegedly left the unit in a vehicle, which was later found abandoned in Blackstone.

None of the men applied for bail and were held in custody.

Mr Aleer is due back in court tomorrow, while Mr Riec's matters were adjourned to November 24.

Majok and Terkok had their cases adjourned for a commital mention on December 2.
