THE boyfriend and two mates of a woman found in bed with another man have been committed to stand trial on assault charges.
Stephen Patrick Brown, 21, of Coleraine, Ryan Andrew Hill, 22, previously of Hamilton, and Aaron Kucera, 25, of Coleraine, faced a Warrnambool Magistrates Court committal hearing this week charged with aggravated burglary and other assault-related offences.
Police said Mr Hill had been in a relationship with a Hamilton woman late last year.
On December 1 Mr Hill and the woman were, separately, at a Hamilton nightclub.
Mr Hill then became aware the woman left with another man.
Police then allege that Mr Hill, Mr Kucera and Mr Brown went to Hamilton’s Park Street about 2am.
All three went into the home, finding the couple in bed.
The trio allegedly assaulted the man.
Magistrate Felicity Broughton committed the accused to stand trial in the Warrnambool County Court on a date to be fixed.
