PENTICTON - An Oliver man will remain in jail following results of a bail hearing in Penticton today.

Brian Douglas Louie, 39, was denied bail on two counts of assaulting a peace officer, one count of assault, one count of assault with a weapon, one count of assault causing bodily harm, and one count of break and enter into a dwelling to commit an offence.

The peace officer assaults allegedly occurred on Jan. 5 in Oliver, while the other charges stem from a second incident allegedly occurring on Feb.24, again in Oliver.

Judge Gregory Koturbash said charges against Louie included allegations of a serious home invasion, adding he was satisfied Crown had provided adequate grounds for holding him.

The judge called defence claims of an alibi for the home invasion crimes “difficult to assess.”

Koturbash also noted Louie’s serious history of violence and non-compliance with court orders in the past.
