Man charged with attempted murder following incident in Corner Brook

On Friday evening the RNC was alerted to an injured male in the lobby of the RNC detachment on University Drive in Corner Brook.

The man sustained serious injuries, believed to be caused by an edged weapon. The 57-year-old male was taken by ambulance to Western Memorial Regional Hospital to seek medical attention.

Officers determined that this was a targeted attack, and did not perceive a risk to the community as a whole. Investigators believe the 57-year-old male victim had sustained injuries from more than one edged weapon during a violent attack, which occurred in the area of Beothuk Crescent in Corner Brook.

Police have charged 32-year-old Evan Long of Corner Brook. He was arrested in St. John’s on March 8 and charged with attempted murder, aggravated assault, assault with a weapon and possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose. Long appeared in Provincial Court in Corner Brook by phone and remains in custody for a bail hearing on Friday.

The investigation is continuing.
