HULL, MASS. (WHDH) - A 40-year-old Hull man has been ordered held without bail after pleading not guilty to a slew of charges.

Sault was arraigned on three counts of aggravated assault, two counts each of malicious destruction of property, and one count each of assault and battery on a family member, assault to murder, assault with a dangerous weapon, simple assault, breaking and entering night time felony, breaking and entering for misdemeanor, kidnapping, property damage to intimidate, intimidation of a witness, vandalism, disturbing the peace, indecent assault and battery on a person 14 or over, and a habitual criminal penalty enhancement.

No further details were released. The incident remains under investigation.
