Yesterday in the quiet town of Makkovik, RCMP was called to an unusual occurrence.
Constable Cara Ludtke is with the Sheshatshiu RCMP.
She says RCMP in Makkovik investigated a domestic incident that involved some serious bodily injury to a local female resident.
Ludtke says a 44 year old Makkovik man was arrested and charged.
Charges include aggravated assault, two counts of assault causing bodily harm, assault and two counts of breach of probation.
Ludtke says the woman managed to get away from this attacker and notified the RCMP.
Makkovik RCMP took immediate action.
The accused appeared for a bail hearing at the Happy Valley Goose Bay Provincial Court this morning.
Ludtke says the status of the bail hearing is not updated, but the matter is still under investigation.
