The Royal Newfoundland Constabulary (RNC) have arrested and charged a 50-year-old male resident of Corner Brook for assault, in addition to charges for failing to comply with a court order.
On Tuesday at about 9:45 a.m. members of RNC's patrol services responded to an incident in the area of Herald Avenue. A 52-year-old female victim was pushed to the ground during the altercation and sustained what police describe as non–life threatening injuries that did not require medical attention.
Both the complainant and accused were known to one another.
The accused was located a short time later, arrested and released to appear in provincial court July 2. Anyone with information relating to this or any other crime is asked to contact the RNC at 637-4100 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
