A St. John’s man accused of chasing his father and stepmother with a chainsaw has been denied bail.
Taylor Mitchell appeared in provincial court in St. John's this morning for his bail hearing.
He's due back in court Feb. 13.
The 22-year-old, who has a history of mental illness, was taken into custody Jan. 14 after he reportedly tried to attack the couple at his grandparents' house on Thorburn Road.
He's charged with two counts each of assault with a weapon and uttering threats, along with single counts of assault, being unlawfully in a dwelling and breaching court orders.
Mitchell also has outstanding charges, including uttering threats, causing a disturbance and theft from October 2013 and failing to appear in court.
