A 42-year-old man was set to make a court appearance on Sunday on a number of charges, including assault with a weapon, after an incident in the early morning hours.
The Royal Newfoundland Constabulary responded to the report of an assault in Portugal Cove around 3 a.m.
The man is facing charges of possession of a weapon dangerous to the public, RNC said.
He was held overnight at the lockup prior to a court appearance.
Meanwhile, a Long Pond man was charged with common assault after a complaint was taken from a female about an incident earlier Sunday.
Police said the accused, 23, was released from custody.
He will make a court appearance at a later date.
