BRIDGEWATER, N.S. - A man accused of sexually assaulting and confining a 16-year-old boy in Nova Scotia is due in court today.

David James Leblanc made his first appearance in Bridgewater provincial court earlier this month after his arrest Sept. 30 in northern Ontario.

The 47-year-old man faces seven charges, including sexual assault, sexual assault causing bodily harm, forcible confinement, uttering a death threat, kidnapping, administering a noxious substance with intent to cause bodily harm, and breach of conditions.

He remains in custody.

The RCMP launched an investigation after a woman reported that a boy showed up at her doorstep in Upper Chelsea, N.S., last month seeking help.

The woman told police the boy was barefoot and chained at his wrists and ankles.
