Stephen Walker, 26, his brother Daniel Walker, 21, of Watanobbi, and Benjamin Heath, 26, of Gosford were arrested on Tuesday over the alleged attack on Mathew King, 23, on February 21.
Police allege the three men are associates of the Hells Angels motorcycle gang.
Mr King was allegedly kidnapped from the Central Coast and taken to several addresses in Sydney’s west, sustaining multiple injuries from assaults - including having a finger de-gloved.
National sergeant at arms of the Hells Angels bikie club Scott Orrock, 49, was arrested on February 22 over the alleged incident and will face a Sydney court in April.
In facts tendered to Wyong Local Court on Wednesday, police claim the incident was connected with the manufacture of illicit drugs.
It is alleged the three Central Coast men kidnapped Mr King from a house at Gorokan, bound him with coathangers and transported him first in the boot of a car belonging to Heath to the home of Daniel Walker at Watanobbi and then in the back seat of Walker’s car to houses at St Marys and Blakehurst, where they were joined by Orrock and two unknown men.
Police allege he was subjected to numerous assaults with fists and a hammer before managing to escape to a local service station, from where he was taken to hospital.
The court heard Mr King suffered extensive bruising to his body and right eye, cuts to his forehead, a fracture to the little finger of his left hand requiring the insertion of seven pins and back injury.
Magistrate Susan McIntyre described the alleged offences as “horrific”.
She refused bail citing the trio’s involvement in a “joint criminal enterprise” and “the danger of interference with witnesses or evidence”.
The Walker brothers and Heath will face Wyong Local Court again on March 18 on charges of taking and detaining in company, causing actual bodily harm, and causing grievous harm with intent.
