Christopher Albert Belyea, arrested after three men interrupted an apparent beating in Rothesay, will not be granted bail on an assault charge, a judge decided Monday.
Belyea was in court for a bail hearing on charges laid this month following the daylight attack on a woman near KV Rental.
On March 1, three employees of the store were heralded as heroes after coming to the aid of the woman, who was pinned against a tree.
Brandon Childs, 18, Keith Bishop, 19, and Erik Pitre, 21, were pushing equipment back inside for the day around 5 p.m. when Childs noticed a commotion nearby.
When the men realized a woman was being attacked, they surrounded her to protect her and called 911.
The attacker ran way when police sirens could be heard.
Kennebecasis Regional police said a man was apprehended in a vehicle in Rothesay a short time later.
On Monday, a charge of possession of marijuana was dropped, but a charge of breaking and entering was added.
The publication of evidence presented during the bail hearing was banned.
Belyea will appear in court April 3 at 9:30 a.m. to enter a plea and choose a mode of trial.
