A 22-year-old man remains in hospital with serious injuries after being attacked on George Street early Friday morning.

The Royal Newfoundland Constabulary were called to the popular St. John's bar strip around 3:30 a.m., where they said one man assaulted another.

Late Friday, the RNC arrested a 22-year-old New Brunswick man and charged him with aggravated assault. He is scheduled to appear in provincial court on Saturday morning.

Investigators with the major crimes unit are hoping witnesses will come forward in the case.
