Bond denied for man accused of attempting to rape woman

July 01, 2006

A judge on Friday decided that a man charged with trying to rape a woman a day earlier should be held without bond.

James Bond, 33, who police said has no fixed address, is facing charges of attempted first-degree rape, second-degree assault and sexual assault.

A woman reported being approached by a man early Thursday as she walked to Meda's Tavern on East Franklin Street. The man asked for a cigarette and she gave him one, according to a press release from the Hagerstown Police Department.

About 12:20 a.m., as the woman walked away, the man allegedly struck her in the face, knocked her to the ground, got on top of her and sexually assaulted her, according to the release.

Police said they found Bond on top of the woman in the downtown central parking lot.

During a bond review Friday, Washington County District Judge Mark Thomas ruled that Bond should be held without bond, according to court records.
