A 24-year-old man in St. John's was arrested Sunday morning for assaulting a police officer.

The Royal Newfoundland Constabulary responded to a complaint about a disturbance outside a business in the Topsail Road area at around 2:30 a.m.

The suspect was taken to hospital for minor injuries, and later taken to the lockup to await a court appearance in the morning.

It is unknown if the RNC officer sustained any injuries.
