The Oakland Press of Pontiac reported 29-year-old Craig Savage appeared briefly Tuesday in 52-3 District Court in Rochester Hills, where a judge rejected a request to reduce his bond. Savage is due in court Feb. 6 for a preliminary examination.

Defense lawyer Steven Lynch said the charges are “still just allegations at this point.” He said the allegations are completely out character for Savage.

Authorities said Savage assaulted his 31-year-old girlfriend the morning of Dec. 23 at an apartment in Oakland County’s Oxford Township. He faces charges including second-degree criminal sexual conduct, unlawful imprisonment and assault with a dangerous weapon.

Authorities said Savage’s girlfriend was able to leave after he fell asleep.
