A 19-year-old male and a 17-year-old female were arrested Saturday night in Mount Pearl on multiple assault charges.
Adam Jonathon Hickey and the 17-year-old (who cannot be identified) both made separate court appearances in St. John's this morning.
Police responded to a tip concerning an assault already in progress at 10 p.m., according to the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary overnight report.
Hickey faces 10 charges relating to Saturday's alleged events — three for assault, one for assault with a weapon (a knife), three for uttering threats, two for recognizance breaches, and another for failing to comply with a probation order.
He remains in police custody and is due to appear in court on Monday for a bail hearing.
The female youth has been charged with assault, resisting arrest, assaulting an officer, escaping police custody, causing a disturbance, and breaching the conditions of a youth sentence.
She was released on an undertaking. Her next scheduled youth court appearance is on Aug. 21.
