NEW GLASGOW, N.S. —

A man charged after allegedly injuring two people with a knife has been released on bail.

Jordan MacIntyre, 21, was arrested in the morning following the incident, which took place outside of Shenanigans Pub in New Glasgow on Sept. 27. 

He is charged with aggravated assault and possession of a weapon, but the charges have yet to be proven. 

On Nov. 7, the Pictou Provincial Court heard details during MacIntyre's bail hearing to determine if he would be a danger to the public if released on conditions. 

Those details revealed that a brawl outside of the New Glasgow pub involving a group of young men had started at approximately 1 a.m., and during that time MacIntyre acted in such a way that left one man with a serious injury resulting from a stab wound, and a second man with injuries to his arms.

Both men are from Pictou County and were treated at the Aberdeen Hospital. The man who was stabbed was hospitalized for a week and required abdominal surgery.

Included in the conditions of his release, are requirements that MacIntyre stay away from Shenanigans and to have no contact with the victims, as well as a large number of people believed to be witnesses to the incident.

His next court appearance is scheduled for Nov. 12.
