Domestic dispute spills out into St. John’s street

Published on September 4, 2014

Police were called to Southside Road Thursday afternoon to respond to a domestic dispute that spilled out into the streets.

One man is in custody with possible charges pending. At least seven marked Royal Newfoundland Constabulary vehicles were in the area, along with one unmarked police vehicle, and the RNC’s K-9 unit was also at the scene.

According to the RNC, police received multiple calls from neighbours about the incident, with some suggesting the situation was more serious than it in fact turned out to be. One neighbour told The Telegram he has noticed an increased police presence in the area.

Police were witnessed speaking with a woman in one of the RNC vehicles parked at the scene late Thursday afternoon. Paramedics also responded, but no one required medical attention.
