CORNER BROOK — A 20-year-old from Corner Brook has been released under strict conditions after being charged in relation to an assault on a female.
Dylan Joseph Hulan — facing nine charges — appeared in provincial court in Corner Brook, whereby Crown attorney Ed Ring consented to his release on Tuesday.
The RNC reported receiving a complaint of an assault from a 20-year-old city woman known to the accused Monday. She alleged she was assaulted by Hulan between Jan. 8-13 at a city residence. Police were unable to find the accused until Tuesday morning. He was charged with two counts of assault with a weapon — a lozenge and a cooking pot — two counts of assault, uttering threats, two counts of mischief to property — a television and a couch — and two counts of breaching probation.
The victim sustained minor injuries, but did not require medical treatment, according to police. The RNC is continuing to investigate.
Hulan was released under a number of conditions, including signing in at the RCMP detachment in Stephenville weekly, residing with a relative in Stephenville, not carrying or possessing any form of weapons, refraining from alcohol and drugs, and have no contact with the female victim.
Hulan intends to apply to legal aid for representation prior to his Feb. 26 court date.
