RNC Make Arrest in Serious Assault

The Royal Newfoundland Constabulary has laid charges in relation to a serious assault that occurred at a residence on Springdale Street in St. John’s. Shortly before 4:30 am Thursday morning, patrol officers responded to St. Clare’s Emergency Department to a report that a female had been taken there with serious injuries after being assaulted at a residence on Springdale Street a short time earlier. Subsequent to the investigation, a 41 year old St. John’s man was charged with Aggravated Assault and Assault with a Weapon. The 43 year old victim was treated as hospital for her injuries and has since been discharged. Neither the victim nor the accused resided at the residence where the incident took place but both were known to one another.
