An injured woman showed up at the RNC’s Headquarters in St. John’s just after midnight last night to report she had been assaulted.
Police quickly initiated an investigation that resulted in the arrest of a 34-year-old man at a downtown residence. He now faces charges of assault causing bodily harm, assault with a weapon and breach of a court order.
He was taken into custody and will be in court later today. The woman was treated at hospital for her injuries and released.
The RNC say the man and the victim were known to each other.
