Judge orders man accused of attacking woman outside San Francisco condo to stay in jail

SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- The man accused of attacking a woman outside her apartment building near the Embarcadero in San Francisco will now remain in jail. That decision was made in court Tuesday by the same judge who released him earlier. But this time, the judge took into consideration allegations of yet another attack back in February.

These are still pictures of Tuesday's arraignment in court where Austin James Vincent was charged with assaulting a woman and some of her friends with a knife and issuing criminal threats against them. Police say that was back in February. The case was never resolved until the victims saw this mugshot of Vincent following an alleged attack on another woman outside her apartment on Aug. 11, which was caught on surveillance video.

On Tuesday, the District Attorney's Office said other calls have come in.

"Some of those calls have not been substantiated but we have to review every single incident that comes in, some of them we are reviewing," Alex Bastian, spokesperson for the San Francisco District Attorney's Office.

The judge on Tuesday ordered Vincent to remain in jail after he turned himself in on Monday following the February allegations.

Last week, Judge Christine Van Aken was criticized for ordering his release pending the outcome of the alleged attack caught on camera. Vincent was ordered to wear an ankle monitor only after the judge saw the surveillance video.

Van Aken says she now believes Vincent is a public safety risk.

His attorney says while in jail, Vincent will no longer get the medical and psychiatric help he was receiving.

"Austin obviously is upset about the situation. My focus remains on helping Austin and I'm going to keep helping his navigate through the complex system," said Saleem Belbahri with the San Francisco Public Defender's Office.
