A 41-year-old St. John’s man, charged with aggravated assault, has been remanded to custody pending his next court appearance.
Wayne “Dickie” Dunne gestured to media and licked out his tongue as he was led into the courtroom this morning.
He was arrested early yesterday after police were called to St. Claire’s Hospital where a 43-year-old woman was being treated for serious injuries.
Police say the assault occurred at number 74 Springdale Street, a notorious property which has been the scene of a number of violent incidents, including a shooting in January that resulted in attempted murder charges against four people.
Dunne was charged with aggravated assault and assault with a weapon. He’s scheduled to return to court May 1st.
