Corner Brook woman threatened by gun-wielding man
A Corner Brook man is facing weapons and assault charges after a woman was threatened on the city's west side.
The Royal Newfoundland Constabulary said the man, 56, used a gun to threaten the woman at a house on Stratton's Road, Sunday night.
The woman and her son, 28, were able to get out of the house before officers arrived around 11:00 p.m.
The man, who had been drinking, turned himself over to police a short time later.
The accused was arrested and charged with assault with a weapon, careless use and storage of a firearm, and pointing a firearm.
Police said the two are known to one another.
He is scheduled to appear in provincial court in Corner Brook on Monday.
