A 43-year-old man was charged in Nain Tuesday night after his 63-year-old mother suffered a head injury that required medical attention.
The RCMP in Nain received a call about 8:15 p.m. that an assault had occurred in the woman’s residence and that she needed help getting to the local clinic.
The son was arrested a short time later without incident and was held in custody overnight. He is charged with assault causing bodily harm.
He is expected to have a bail hearing today.
Alcohol is believed to have been a factor in this incident.
