The man accused of abducting an 18-year-old woman during a home invasion in Moncton earlier this week remains remanded in custody.

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.
