The Royal Newfoundland Constabulary is investigating an assault with a weapon incident that happened in downtown St. John’s early Saturday morning.
According to police, a 21-year-old man sustained serious but non-life-threatening injuries, while a 21-year-old man was less seriously injured. Both men were taken to hospital for treatment.

The incident happened near the intersection of Bishop’s Cove and Harbourside Drive shortly before 4 a.m. Police declined to identify the type of weapon involved.
Anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact RNC at 729-8000 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS and online at www.nlcrimestoppers.com.
