A Corner Brook man arrested this past weekend for three counts of assaulting a woman with a weapon will be back in court for a bail hearing today.
Benny Arthur Roberts, who has a criminal record for violence, is accused of assaulting the woman last Tuesday.
According to court documents, the 37-year-old is alleged to have used a broom, a prying tool and scissors to assault her.
He is also accused of unlawfully entering the woman’s home with the intention of committing an indictable offence.
Roberts, who appeared before a provincial court judge Saturday, was back in court in Corner Brook Tuesday. Still in custody, his bail hearing has been set for this afternoon.
