Man accused of tossing Holden man off balcony pleads not guilty

BANGOR, Maine — A local man charged with beating a 20-year-old Holden man and pushing him off a second-story balcony pleaded not guilty to aggravated assault Tuesday at the Penobscot Judicial Center.

Lucus A. Glidden, 32, of Bangor also pleaded not guilty to two counts of violation of conditions of release.

He remains free on $1,500 cash bail.

Glidden was released on June 29 after his attorney, Seth Harrow of Bangor, successfully had bail lowered from $5,000 cash.

A trial tentatively was set for Nov. 7.

Glidden was indicted last month by the Penobscot County grand jury in connection with a June 19 incident at an apartment building at 202-208 Essex St. He allegedly assaulted the victim, then carried him back up to the balcony and into the apartment, according to previously published reports.

The victim reportedly landed on his head and suffered serious injuries.

Information on the victim’s condition was not available Tuesday.

If convicted of the Class B assault charge, Glidden faces up to 10 years in prison and a fine of up to $20,000.
