An unusual twist in the investigation into a reported stabbing incident in Port aux Basques has resulted in the arrest of the alleged victim.
RCMP last week charged a 54-year-old Deer Lake man with attempted murder following an alleged incident in Port aux Basques last Wednesday evening.
Thomas Kavanagh was originally arrested, charged, and held in custody—but subsequent investigation resulted in his release and all charges being withdrawn.
The 39-year-old complainant, a man from Port aux Basques, has since been arrested and a charge of public mischief is pending.
The investigation continues.
