Hear­ing set for Glace Bay man on mul­ti­ple of­fences

Cape Breton Post - - CAPE BRETON - SYD­NEY

A Glace Bay man has been as­signed a pre­lim­i­nary hear­ing date on mul­ti­ple of­fences.

Nor­man Wayne Fer­gu­son, 18, is charged with rob­bery with vi­o­lence, as­sault with a weapon, ag­gra­vated as­sault, forcible en­try, pos­ses­sion of a weapon for a dan­ger­ous pur­pose, car­ry­ing a con­cealed weapon and two counts of breach­ing court or­ders.

The charges stem from an al­leged in­ci­dent March 22 at a Dol­phin Cres­cent home dur­ing which a 28-year-old man was stabbed sev­eral times. The vic­tim was treated in hos­pi­tal for non­life-threat­en­ing in­juries.

Fer­gu­son is also fac­ing un­re­lated of­fences of theft (a lap­top) and breach­ing a court or­der that al­legedly oc­curred in Glace Bay on Nov. 2, 2014.

Fer­gu­son has elected to be tried by Supreme Court judge alone and a pre­lim­i­nary hear­ing is set for Jan. 26. A judge pre­sid­ing over such a hear­ing will de­ter­mine if there’s enough ev­i­dence to send the case to trial.
