A man facing several charges, including sexual assault, has been denied bail.

The decision was read by Judge Alonzo Wright in Halifax provincial court on Wednesday.

Gamon Jay Leacock, 49, was arrested earlier this year after police responded to two violent incidents in Halifax.

He is now facing 15 criminal charges, including aggravated sexual assault, forcible confinement, robbery and breaching court orders connected to three different incidents.

Leacock had been released from prison last October after completing a 14-year sentence for a sexual assault that took place in Montreal in 2009.

At the time of his release, police warned the public that Leacock was living in the Halifax area.

He is set to return to court in early April.
