Court proceedings have been delayed until next month against an Innisfail man accused of breaking into his former spouse’s home, and attacking and kidnapping her.

Airdrie RCMP allege that they were called to the CrossIron Mills Mall in Balzac on March 28 by a security guard who had been slipped a note by a woman saying she had been kidnapped.

Police officers who answered the complaint allege that they witnessed the accused man striking a woman and that he then turned on them while they were making the arrest. The man’s name has been withheld to protect the identity of his victim.

The accused man, who remains in custody, made a brief appearance in Airdrie provincial court on Thursday. He reserved his plea on charges of housebreaking with intent to commit a crime, sexual assault, choking with intent, assault causing bodily harm, unlawful confinement, kidnapping, uttering death threats, resisting a police officer, assaulting a police officer, possession of a weapon dangerous to the public and breaching the conditions of a recognizance.

He is to return to court on Sept. 13 to enter a plea.
