A 41-year-old St. John’s man is scheduled to appear in court this morning on charges of aggravated assault and assault with a weapon.
Wayne Gollop was arrested by RNC after they were called to St. Claire’s Hospital early yesterday morning where a 43-year-old woman was being treated for serious injuries.
Police say the woman had earlier been assaulted at number 74 Springdale Street.
The address is well known to police. It’s the same location of a shooting incident in January that resulted in the arrest of three adults and one minor on charges of attempted murder.
Gollop made a brief appearance in court yesterday and was remanded for a psychiatric assessment.
The man and woman are known to each other. The woman was treated in hospital and released.
