Woman assaulted with case of beer

A man in Shetshashiu has been arrested for a violent attack against his wife.

RCMP said the couple had a disagreement last week, which escalated. Police said the man, 45, hit his wife, 43, in the head with a full case of beer and then hit her with a broken bottle, cutting her head.

The man was arrested Thursday and held for a bail hearing in Happy Valley-Goose Bay.

He's facing charges of assault with a weapon and breaching court orders.

Police added the woman's injuries were minor in nature and alcohol is believed to be a factor in the assault.
