Cape Breton Post - - Cape Breton -

SYD­NEY — Af­ter hear­ing ev­i­dence in a pre­lim­i­nary hear­ing, a pro­vin­cial court judge or­dered a Syd­ney man to trial in Supreme Court on two charges.

Mo­hammed Zu­raibi Al­zoabi, 25, of Tow­erview Place, is now to ap­pear in Supreme Court on Sept. 5 to re­ceive a trial date on charges of as­sault with a weapon (a ve­hi­cle) and dan­ger­ous driv­ing caus­ing bod­ily harm.

The charges stem from an in­ci­dent in Syd­ney in De­cem­ber 2016 in which a man suf­fered a bro­ken leg and wrist.

Ev­i­dence pre­sented at the pre­lim­i­nary hear­ing is banned from pub­li­ca­tion un­til the end of the trial.

Al­zoabi has elected to be tried by a judge and jury.

He is also to re­turn to pro­vin­cial court Jan. 24 for another pre­lim­i­nary hear­ing on charges of sex­ual as­sault, un­law­ful con­fine­ment, as­sault, ut­ter­ing a threat and crim­i­nal ha­rass­ment. Should he be or­dered to trial, Al­zoabi has elected Supreme Court trial with a judge and jury. He con­tin­ues is re­lease on con­di­tions.
