Man Charged In Senior Mugging Denied Bail

A 30-year old man being held in custody on a charge of robbery. 

Matthew James appearing in provincial court for a bail hearing today. He was arrested and charged with the purse-snatching of an elderly woman on Leinster Street in the early evening of December 7. The 74-year old woman suffered some minor injuries after a struggle.

Judge Henrik Tonning says he's convinced if James were released he would commit another offense.
