Charged Robber out on Bail

You may recall a break-in that occurred approximately 1 month ago (see link: http://www.windsorstar.com/news/Senior+charged+with+robbery/5095486/story.html) on McEwan Ave. where a 66 yr old threatened homeowners with a knife.  He was charged with two counts of robbery, two counts of forcible confinement, uttering threats to cause death and assault with a weapon.

I was told today that he is out on bail from a resident who lives on McEwan Ave.
