- He was refused yesterday on bail during a trial after he was initially released
Austin Vincent, 25, was denied bail yesterday after being accused of blocking a woman from entering her apartment and attacking her. Other charges against him were withdrawn
A man accused of blocking a woman from entering her apartment building and attacking her has been denied bail.
Austin Vincent, 25, was charged with false imprisonment, battery, and attempted theft, and left the courtroom yesterday and cursed prosecutors and the judge.
It is claimed that he attacked the Paneez Kosarian from San Francisco outside the lobby of the Watermark building on August 11 at 2:00 am. CBS.
Although he was taken into custody, Vincent was originally released by the police only three days later and was arrested again last week for another crime.
CCTV recordings of the incident seem to show that Vincent is holding Mrs. Kosarian's legs before she is thrown to the ground.
He then pulls on the front door in an attempt to open it after she manages to come in with the help of the apartment security officer.

Kosarian told KPIX 5 that Vincent had quietly approached her before things became violent and he claimed that the guard was a & # 39; robot & # 39; used to be.
She said: & # 39; He held my legs, pulled on my legs, and didn't let me go in for five minutes. & # 39;
After the incident, Mr. Kosarian, who has been living in the area for six years, said she is considering moving.
She wrote on Twitter: & # 39; Please watch this video that I am being attacked at my own front door.

& # 39; Judge Christine Van Aken released my attacker after only 72 hours because she thinks this homeless man with mental health and drug addiction & # 39; safe & # 39; and & # 39; is harmless to our city. & # 39;
Although Vincent was arrested, he was released three days later and caused frustration in the California city.
Vincent, pictured yesterday, was again arrested on charges of beating with a knife, but these had fallen
The San Francisco Police Officers Association called for the judge Vincent had released to resign.
They said: & # 39; The continued tenure of Judge Christine Van Aken for overseeing criminal cases is a danger to every law-abiding resident of San Francisco. & # 39;
Public Prosecutor Dennis Herrera defended Judge Van Aken's decision to release Vincent and said that the Public Prosecutor's office did not show her the images of the CCTV.
Vincent was arrested again last week after being accused in February of threatening someone with a knife.
Yesterday, however, Judge Ross C. Moody dropped those accusations after hearing that Vincent was following a drug abuse program in California at that time.
The San Francisco District Attorney & # 39; s Office said they believed Vincent would be a threat to public security if he was released during the hearing, reports Fox news.
Mrs. Kosarian, resident of San Francisco, tweeted the CCTV recordings after Vincent was released for the alleged attack
The Watermark building where Vincent reportedly attacked Mrs. Kosarian is next to the potential location for a homeless center.
Mrs. Kosarian said: “Don't twist it, this is a problem for the homeless and we are going to build more shelters. Give them more treatment. These people are mentally ill.
& # 39; You cannot place these people in a residential area and say, "Do not feel unsafe. You are safe." The city must tackle this well. & # 39;
