CHANNEL-PORT-AUX-BASQUES, NL – An incident at a Port aux Basques bar over the weekend has lead to assault charges against two men from the area.

According to an RCMP news release, police were called to an establishment on Caribou Road early in the morning on Saturday, Nov. 25. The Gulf News has since learned the bar was the Port Club.

Police say a 23-year-old man was allegedly assaulted by two other men, a 20-year-old man from Port aux Basques and a 19-year-old man from Cape Ray. The 20-year-old has also been charged with a breach of probation.
