Corner Brook man faces assault charge

A 61-year-old man was taken into custody Saturday in Corner Brook after allegedly threatening staff at a bar with a sharp-edged weapon.

A spokesperson for the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary said the incident occurred at a lounge in the Broadway area early Saturday evening.

The man apparently became agitated when staff refused to serve him alcohol.

No one was injured in the incident.

The man is a resident of the city and is known to the staff.

He's been charged with uttering threats and assault with a weapon and was scheduled for a court appearance on Sunday.
