Bikie in Vic court over home invasion


A Mongols bikie and his alleged female accomplice have fronted court over a Melbourne home invasion in which two men were stabbed.

Shane Scott Bowden, 42, and Aysen Unlu, 40, are accused of breaking into a South Yarra home armed with a knife and taking cash and personal items.

The pair allegedly used night vision goggles and camouflage clothing in the burglary.

Two male residents of the home were taken to hospital with severe cuts to their hands, and at least one required surgery, police say.

Bowden and Unlu appeared separately for brief hearings in Melbourne Magistrate Court on Wednesday. They did not apply for bail.

They each face 10 charges including aggravated burglary, going equipped to steal, intentionally causing injury, assault and theft.

They will face a committal mention hearing in the same court in April.
