RCMP officers in Happy Valley-Goose Bay were called to a domestic dispute in a home in the community shortly after 3:10 a.m. this morning
Police say an investigation revealed that a 39-year-old woman from Goose Bay and 20-year-old boyfriend from Sheshatshiu were arguing, when the man allegedly assaulted the woman several times outside the home and then left the area.
The woman was taken to hospital where she was treated for non-life threatening injuries. The man was arrested a short time later in the community and held in custody overnight.
He will be released later today and will be appearing in provincial court in Happy Valley-Goose Bay on Oct. 22 to answer to a charge of assault causing bodily harm.
Alcohol is believed to have been a factor in this incident.
