DL man charged with violating restraining order

A Detroit Lakes man charged with one felony count of violating a harassment protection made his first appearance Wednesday in Becker County District Court.

Keith Kevin Sleen, 33, of 12954 Abbey Alake Drive, Detroit Lakes, is accused of approaching a woman with whom he was forbidden to have contact as the result of a harassment restraining order filed on Oct. 30, 2012.

According to court records, Sleen and the woman were both at a Detroit Lakes convenience store on Sept. 22; as the woman was leaving, he allegedly approached her. The woman said he had approached her and said he was sorry.

Sleen is in custody at the Becker County Jail pending his next court appearance, set for Oct. 8. His bail was set at $20,000 with conditions, or $80,000 without conditions.
