Valley Journal Advertiser - - EXTRAS -

A Kentville man fac­ing charges fol­low­ing a pub­lic al­ter­ca­tion in the down­town on March 1 has been re­leased from cus­tody.

Steven Ger­ald May­nard, 25, is charged with ag­gra­vated as­sault and car­ry­ing a weapon for a pur­pose dan­ger­ous to the pub­lic peace.

May­nard was brought to Kentville pro­vin­cial court in cus­tody on March 5. Fol­low­ing a bail hear­ing, he was re­leased on a $ 1,000 non- cash re­cog­ni­zance with con­di­tions and a surety. May­nard’s mat­ters have been ad­journed to March 27 for elec­tion and plea.

Kentville Po­lice Ser­vice was called to Web­ster Street shortly af­ter 9 a.m. on March 1 to as­sist with a dis­pute in­volv­ing three men. Chief Ju­lia Cec­chetto said in a news re­lease that when po­lice ar­rived, a 29-year-old male vic­tim was lo­cated suf­fer­ing from non­life threat­en­ing knife wounds. He was trans­ported to Val­ley Re­gional Hos­pi­tal for treat­ment. Cec­chetto said the par­ties in- volved were known to one an­other and it wasn’t a ran­dom act.

Around 9:40 a.m. on March 1, sev­eral drops of blood were still vis­i­ble on the side­walk be­tween the Cen­tre Square Tim Hor­tons and the nearby CIBC and of­fi­cers could be seen gath­er­ing in­for­ma­tion in the area.

The 25-year-old sus­pect was found on Prospect Av­enue. He was ar­rested and made an ini­tial court ap­pear­ance later in the day.
