A brief first court appearance for the man accused in a vicious sexual assault in Lethbridge last week.
20-year-old Denzel Dre Colton Bird was officially charged yesterday with several counts including attempted murder and aggravated assault.
Investigators say the young woman was hit with a weapon, dragged into an alley, and sexually assaulted as she was walking to work last Friday.
They believe the attack was random.
Bird is still working to retain a lawyer, and had his case adjourned to October 20th.
