A Busy Weekend For Police

An assault behind a strip club, another assault in East Saint John and a collision involving an impaired driver on the Causeway...just some of what City police officers were dealing with this weekend.

Early Saturday morning, a man was found unconscious behind an uptown strip club. Two men, 18 and 23 years old, are facing charges.    

Sgt. Jay Henderson says officers were also called to the Prince Edward Square after someone saw a man acting strangely and carrying what may have been a handgun.    Officers later found the man on Charlotte Street.

A 33 year old man was found with an Airsoft pistol that was painted black and did look like a gun. It turns out the man was on court-ordered house arrest which he violated. He was arrested and is being held in custody until a court appearance.

About 9:45pm on Saturday night, officers responding to a medical call off Grandview Avenue where they found a person who was assaulted and the person they thought was responsible was also still in the home. That man is facing charges of threats, pointing a firearm, assault with a weapon and mischief.

Just before 10 last night, officers arresting a 15 year old boy near Wright street who was found driving a car reported stolen earlier in the day.
