CANADIAN PRESS-A man charged in connection with an assault on a homeless man in Cape Breton was released from custody on Thursday.

Forty-seven-year-old Gordon William Bobbitt of North Sydney is charged with obstruction of justice in the July 14 attack on 48-year-old Shawn Kurtis Jack, formerly of Truro.

Bobbitt allegedly hid or concealed a wrench police seized at the time of his arrest in July.

He was released on a $5,000 property surety and other conditions.
