Spencer Gordon Bell has been arrested and released from custody.

The Corner Brook man was the subject of a press release issued by the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary Monday, which said Bell was wanted in connection with an alleged assault.

Bell, 23, was arrested early Tuesday morning and appeared in provincial court later in the day. He was charged with assault with a weapon, assault causing bodily harm and three breaches of court orders.

Crown attorney Adam Sparkes was not opposed to releasing Bell on a surety and certain conditions.

Bell’s case will be called in provincial court again July 4.
