Accused in Moncton home invasion, abduction denied release
John Jay Anderson, 21, facing 7 charges in connection with alleged kidnapping of 18-year-old woman
John Jay Anderson, 21, made his first court appearance on Friday morning and the Crown objected to his release.
A bail hearing will be held on Tuesday.
Anderson is facing seven charges, including breaking and entering a home on Aug. 26, unlawful confinement, three counts of assault, uttering threats to burn the victim's family's house down, and breaching a probation order to keep the peace and be of good behaviour.
There is a publication ban on the victim's identity.
She was located on Aug. 26 around 8 p.m., about four hours after Codiac Regional RCMP were advised a man had broken into a house and taken a woman against her will.
Investigators determined the man travelled with the woman to the Miramichi area and then returned to Moncton.
Anderson was arrested on Aug. 28, at about 11:45 p.m., shortly after a warrant had been issued for his arrest and police had asked for the public's assistance.
None of the allegations have been proven in court.
The investigation continues.
