The Royal Newfoundland Constabulary had a busy 24-hour-period in the St. John's-metro region from early Thursday morning to Friday morning, with 175 calls for service.

Several involved assaults and disturbances. Here are some details from the latest RNC report:

• Around 6:30 p.m. Thursday, police responded to a disturbance at a Mount Pearl residence.

A short time later, patrol members located the suspect in the downtown St. John's area.

The 27-year-old male suspect was arrested and has been charged with assault with weapon, property damage and breaches of a court order. He was conveyed to court.

There were no injuries reported.

• Around 9:30 p.m. Thursday, patrol members received a complaint of assault from a St John’s hospital.

A 31-year-old man was arrested for assault. He was conveyed to court.

• At 2:50 p.m. Thursday, police responded to a three-vehicle collision on Hamilton Avenue. One vehicle collided with two other cars.

Police say the cause of the collision is still under Investigation, with further details to follow. Alcohol and drugs are believed to be involved.

• At 5:30 p.m., RNC street patrol officers responded to the Imogene Crescent area in Paradise.

It was reported that a 48-year-old man was responsible for an assault with a weapon and uttering threats toward a 16-year-old female.

The man was subsequently charged with assault and uttering threats. He was released from police custody and will appear in court at a later date. There were no reported injuries resulting from the incident.

    It's so sad that the RNC took the time to report the incident on our street last night but failed to include information leading up to the alleged assault. This 48 yr old man was simply looking our for family after she was attacked by two cross breed pit bulls, one of which bit her. The threats were to the dogs not the 16 year old girl and at no point was there any mention of these savage animals who threatened our street yesterday.

    It's a shame that there's always a ruckus downtown at the bars. It's simply people who can't handle their liquor.

      Why is it that all information pertaining to the arrest of a 48 year old man on Imogene Crescent isn't published? What about the two pit bull cross breed dogs that attacked and bit a 19 year old girl that led to the arrest of the man in question?? Why is that his character is defaced yet the owners of the dogs look like the victims?
