A man suspected of attacking two men with a baseball bat over the weekend is scheduled to have a bail hearing Friday.

Brandon (a.k.a. Brendon) Christopher Tobin was back in provincial court in St. John’s Monday, a day after making his initial appearance.

The 20-year-old ducked to try to hide his face from reporters’ cameras as he was led in and out of Courtroom No. 7.

Prosecutor Jason House told Judge Pamela Goulding that the Crown is opposed to releasing Tobin from jail. He and duty counsel Jane Fitzpatrick agreed to have Tobin return to court at the end of the week for a bail hearing.

Tobin is charged with aggravated assault, two counts of assault with a weapon, breach of probation and breach of an undertaking.

He was arrested Sunday — a day after police say he attacked the two men.

Officers were called to Keegan Court in the capital city shortly after 2 p.m. Saturday to a report of an assault with a weapon. But when they got there, neither a victim nor a suspect could be found.

One of the two victims in the case was later located at a hospital, where he was being treated for serious injuries.

Police would not say whether the injuries were life threatening.
