Sixty-eight-year-old Torben Lange, who is charged with aggravated assault related to possible stabbings, has been granted bail.

Police responded to a report of a domestic assault at 370 Elizabeth Rd. at 10:15 p.m. last Wednesday. Three people, including Lange were taken to hospital with serious but non life threatening injuries, described as “puncture wounds,” according to RCMP Sgt. Craig Massey.

Lange appeared in court on Friday with visible bruising and stitches on his face and head. He kept his head down during proceedings and rocked slightly from time to time.

Judge Brian Saunderson granted bail on Friday, pending a $10,000 cash deposit, which was paid.

A no contact order, no alcohol, no weapons or knives except for the purpose of food preparation, surrender of passport, a promise to remain on Vancouver Island are among the conditions of bail.

Lange’s next court appearance is today.
