Police in Corner Brook responded to a disturbance on O'Connell Drive shortly after 1 a.m. Saturday between a female victim, 34, and a 28-year-old man.

Shortly before Royal Newfoundland Constabulary officers arrived, the man left the area.

The woman was taken to Western Memorial Hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries she sustained during the incident.

The RNC said the accused man was quickly located.

Police arrested the man for assault causing bodily harm, and he was charged with breaching conditions of three court orders.

The accused was held in custody overnight to appear in court Saturday morning.

The RNC said the two were known to each other and that alcohol was a factor.
