One person was sent to hospital with a non life-threatening injury after a disturbance in St. John's Wednesday night, according to the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary's overnight report.
Around 9 p.m., members of operational patrol services responded to the downtown incident.
After a brief investigation, officers arrested and held for court a 48-year-old man on charges of assault with a weapon, assault causing bodily harm and breaches of a court release order.
In a news release later Thursday morning, the RNC said a 50-year-old woman was the victim taken to a hospital.
He was held in custody to appear in provincial court.
The RNC asked that anyone with information which may assist the investigation contact the RNC at 729-8000 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477). You can now provide information anonymously on the NL Crime Stoppers Website at www.nlcrimestoppers.com.
