TRURO, N.S. – A man arrested after allegedly barricading himself into an Onslow Mountain home Sunday morning has been ordered out to stay away from Colchester County.

Nicohlas Ian MacNevin-Cole, 35, was released from custody on a $500 recognizance during a bail hearing on Monday in Truro. Part of his release conditions are that he stay away from Colchester County except for court appearances and scheduled appointments with his lawyer.

His residence is listed in court documents as Marlow Road in Hanwell, N.B.

An RCMP news release said he exited the residence just after 12:40 p.m. Sunday through assistance from the RCMP Emergency Response Team.

MacNevin-Cole is charged with careless use of a firearm by discharging a 12-guage shotgun into a wall at the home, assault with a weapon by holding the shotgun across a woman’s throat, uttering a death threat to the woman and assault causing bodily harm.

He is scheduled to enter a plea to the charges on June 13 in provincial court in Truro.

Other release conditions include obeying a curfew from 11 p.m. to 6 a.m., not possessing, consuming or using alcohol or illicit drugs, not entering establishments where alcohol is sold and having no contact with his complainant.
