Justin Holt, 28, is alleged to have broken into a Red Deer apartment on Aug. 31, contrary to a peace bond, where he assaulted a woman with a knife. The peace bond required Holt to stay at least 200 metres away from the victim. He faces charges including assault, assault with a weapon, break and enter and two counts of breach of a court order.

Police said Holt has a history of domestic violence and was wanted on numerous warrants. He was arrested on Sept. 6.

He appeared in Red Deer provincial court on Wednesday. Crown prosecutor Murray McPherson added the second count of breach of a court order to his latest set of charges. His matter has been adjourned to Sept. 17 and he remains in custody.

He also faces other charges including uttering threats and breaching court orders stemming from separate incidents.
