A 48 year-old man from Meadows has been charged with assault causing bodily harm following an incident Saturday morning.

The Royal Newfoundland Constabulary responded to a disturbance at a bar in the Broadway area of Corner Brook around 1 a.m.

When they arrived they found an injured man, 48, who is employed at the bar.

Witnesses told police that the suspect left the bar in a taxi, which police tracked down a short time later.

Officers arrested the suspect and released him with a scheduled court date of January 15.

The victim is believed to have suffered non-life threatening injuries.
