Westmount man charged with breaching conditions
A Westmount man released on conditions in April after posting $30,000 in bail has been arrested and remanded on charges of breaching his release conditions.
Mohammed Zuraibi Alzoabi, 25, of Fairhaven Drive, was released in early April on a host of conditions after posting both cash and property to secure his release.
He is now alleged to have breached his conditions by failing to report in person to Cape Breton Regional Police and two counts of contacting individuals he was ordered not to contact.
The offences are alleged to have occurred April 18.
The accused is now expected to have a bail hearing today on the new breach charges.
Alzoabi was released on conditions on two counts of criminal harassment and single counts of sexual assault, forcible confinement, assault with a weapon, dangerous driving, assault and uttering a threat.
The offences are alleged to have occurred between August 2016 and March.
Other conditions of his release included refraining from alcohol and drugs not prescribed to him by a physician and the Saudi-national was also to turn over his passport to regional police and not apply for a new one.
He is also prohibited from operating any vehicle or sit in the front seat of any vehicle and is not allowed to purchase or otherwise obtain a vehicle.
He is to return to court May 15 to enter pleas to the charges.
In addition to the criminal offence, the accused also has nearly $69,000 in outstanding motor vehicle fines that were issued between April 2014 and June 2016 for a number of offences including driving with no insurance, driving while disqualified, speeding and driving without a licence.
