A man who allegedly broke into a Melbourne home wearing only a g-string and head torch has been denied bail.

Miklos Petrik, 39, is charged with aggravated burglary and theft offences over the alleged incident at a Kensington property in November last year, and is also accused of stalking an occupant of the home in mid-2016.

Meanwhile, a Brisbane teenager has allegedly tortured a foster child who has since been placed with maternal grandparents.

The teenager did not enter a plea to one charge of torture of the eight-year-old boy in Brisbane’s Magistrates Court on Saturday.

The teenager is alleged to have burnt the child’s face by placing the heated rim of a lighter against his temple as punishment.

He’s alleged to have said, “If you try and run away, I’ll burn the other side of your face.”

The boy was taken to Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital for treatment.

The teenager was not the foster carer for the child.

Magistrate Mark Bucknall granted the teenager bail on the condition he did not contact the victim and reported once a week to a local police station.
