Mackenzie, appeared before Magistrate Joseph Daurewa, charged with one count of Sexual Assault, and two counts of Indecently Insulting or Annoying any Persons.
The accused had sought legal assistance from the Legal Aid Commission.
Police Prosecution objected to his bail application on the grounds that investigations were still active on other cases with similar offences.

The matter has been adjourned to May 16 for bail.
