ACCUSED of taking part in a violent Gladstone home invasion, Zarne Fraider has been committed to stand trial in the District Court.

Fraider, 35, a New Zealand national, will stand trial on a charge of three assaults causing bodily harm while armed/in company on December 4 last year.

The Crown will allege Fraider and others took part in the assault of two men at a Rollo St home.

In material before Gladstone magistrate Mark Morrow, the incident allegedly involved a hammer, crow bar, knife, and a gun.

Held in custody for four months, Fraider made a successful bail application to live with his mother on the Gold Coast. Imposing a night curfew Mr Morrow ordered he report daily to Burleigh Heads police.
