Police have arrested two men following violence apparently related to “the activities of outlaw motorcycle gangs in the St. John’s region,” according to a notice issued late this afternoon.
A news conference has been scheduled for shortly before 5 p.m.
According to the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary (RNC), their investigation of a series of illegal activities in late May led them outside their jurisdiction and resulted in a joint investigation with the RCMP.
Extending from this investigation, two arrests were made earlier today.
The first arrest was of a 32-year-old man who is charged with four counts of common assault and three counts of uttering threats.
A 50-year-old man was the second person arrested, charged with four counts of common assault and one count of uttering threats.
The two men are currently in custody and awaiting court appearances.
