The Happy Valley-Goose Bay man who allegedly beat a man unconscious is remanded until his next court appearance on October 21.
Sergeant Boyd Merrill is the RCMP Media Relations Officer in St. John’s.
He says a judge ruled that 20-year-old William Peter Pijogge will be remanded until a court appearance later this month.
Merrill says Pijogge will be facing an aggravated assault charge on that date.
A 53-year-old man was found beaten and unresponsive on Birch Island road on September 29.
He says the victim still remains in serious but stable condition at the Health Sciences Centre in St. John’s.
Merrill says a Major Crimes and Identification Section from the island was flown into the community to investigate the matter.
The investigation is still ongoing.
