Po­lice swoop on unit

Isis Town and Country - - News -

SCENES of Crime have swooped on a unit in Takalvan St as po­lice con­tinue to in­ves­ti­gate the al­leged tor­ture of a 29-year-old man in Mt Perry last month.

Bund­aberg Crim­i­nal In­ves­ti­ga­tion Branch De­tec­tive Se­nior Sergeant Joe Hil­dred said Bund­aberg po­lice joined of­fi­cers from Bris­bane as they spent yes­ter­day ex­am­in­ing the unit.

“As a re­sult of in­ves­ti­ga­tions made by de­tec­tives yes­ter­day (Mon­day) af­ter­noon, this morn­ing (Tues­day) a sec­ondary crime scene has been de­clared at an ad­dress at Takalvan St,” he said.

“Two men are as­sist­ing po­lice with their in­quiries at this stage and a num­ber of state­ments are be­ing taken.

“Neigh­bours at the ad­dress – the units at Takalvan St, are also be­ing can­vassed in re­la­tion to any in­for­ma­tion that they might have in re­la­tion to the tor­ture of the man at Mt Perry be­tween March 20 and March 28.”

Det Snr Sgt Hil­dred said po­lice were in­ves­ti­gat­ing whether more than one per­son was in­volved on the al­leged as­sault.

“The in­for­ma­tion re­ceived by de­tec­tives is that a man was (al­legedly) as­saulted by a num­ber of per­sons,” he said.

“At this stage there are two men de­tec­tives are look­ing at for be­ing re­spon­si­ble for the as­sault.

“The as­saults are be­lieved to have oc­curred at the Takalvan St units and also at the ad­dress at Mt Perry that po­lice have al­ready can­vassed dur­ing the week.

“Of­fi­cers from Bund­aberg Scenes of Crime have at­tended the scene as also have of­fi­cers from the Bris­bane Sci­en­tific Unit.”

Det Snr Sgt Hil­dred urged any neigh­bours who might have any in­for­ma­tion to come for­ward and con­tact po­lice.

“Po­lice are call­ing for any wit­nesses who may have heard some­thing at the units at Takalvan St, or al­ter­na­tively the ad­dress at Mt Perry,” he said.

Det Snr Sgt Hil­dred said they were still in­ves­ti­gat­ing the rea­son be­hind the al­leged as­sault but con­firmed the al­leged com­plainant and his al­leged at­tacker where known to each other.

On Mon­day, 32-year-old Kep­nock man Brett Spies ap­peared in the Bund­aberg Mag­is­trates Court charged with one count each of griev­ous bod­ily harm, de­pri­va­tion of lib­erty, tor­ture and acts in­tended to maim/dis­fig­ure or dis­able.

He made no ap­pli­ca­tion for bail and was re­manded in cus­tody. Any­one with info can phone 4153 9111.
