A MAN involved in an aggravated home invasion has been committed for sentencing in the coming District Court sittings in Albury.
Beau Eric Burgess yesterday pleaded guilty in Albury Local Court to a charge of aggravated break and enter and commit a serious indictable offence in company.
He appeared through a video link from Junee jail and magistrate Tony Murray committed him to the District Court starting on October 8.
The court was told in tendered facts that Burgess, 23, was a friend of another man who began a jail sentence in December last year.
But he was released from custody about 3.30pm on January 22.
It was about 8pm the same day that Burgess accompanied his friend to visit his former partner in North Albury.
The intention was for Burgess to be a “mediator” between the woman and his friend.
His friend went to the front door of a unit in Plummer Street, but it was closed and locked.
Burgess went to the back and opened a closed unlocked screen door.
He walked inside and saw his friend’s former partner in a bedroom with another man.
Burgess ran down the hallway and assaulted the man by punching him six times to the head.
Soon after his friend forced entry through the front door and assaulted his former partner who was screaming for them to leave.
Both Burgess and his friend went out of the unit and left in a waiting vehicle.
Police arrested Burgess.
They then charged him on January 26.
