UPDATE: Two people charged after man allegedly tortured

LATEST: TWO people accused of torturing a man before stabbing him with a syringe at Sadliers Crossing have fronted court where they were both remanded into custody.

Tracey Jean Mackay, 47, and Rodney James Dingle, 47, appeared in Ipswich Magistrates Court on Monday after being charged at the weekend.

Both are facing three counts each of assault occasioning bodily harm and one count each of torture and stealing.

It is alleged the two held a man, 55, hostage at a house in Syntax St after he went to the property on Friday evening.

The victim was allegedly bound with duct tape and assaulted before being stabbed a number of times in the arm with a syringe.

The victim managed to escape on Saturday morning and went to Ipswich police station where he received medical treatment for non-life threatening injuries.

The court heard on Monday during a bail application that Ms Mackay was the sole carer of her wheelchair-bound daughter, 10, who was learning to walk again following a leg operation.

Mr Dingle made no application for bail.

Magistrate Donna MacCallum said the police case against the two was fairly compelling.

She noted police had gathered evidence from the scene including the victim's blood, duct tape with hair stuck to it and stolen property.

Mr Dingle's case was adjourned until June 7 and Ms Mackay's case was adjourned until June 29.
