During Baldwin's bail review hearing in Bel Air Friday afternoon, Assistant State's Attorney Jennifer Bober, reading from the charging documents, said Baldwin allegedly assaulted his sister with a 5-inch kitchen knife, as a result of an argument. Baldwin allegedly chased her around the house before she fled to a neighbor's.

Baldwin's mother, fiancée and child were in the courtroom during his hearing.

District Court Judge Mimi Cooper ordered Baldwin to be held without bail and have no contact with the victim.
