Six Roads, New Brunswick – Two men and a woman were arrested in connection with an alleged incident of aggravated assault in Six Roads, N.B.

On October 17, 2016, shortly after 7 p.m., members of the Tracadie RCMP responded to a report of an aggravated assault at a residence on Route 150. A 55-year-old man from Caraquet was found badly injured and was transported to hospital for treatment. His injuries are serious, but are not believed to be life-threatening.

One of the men and the woman were later released on various conditions and are scheduled to appear in court on January 11 and 25, 2017, respectively.

A 38-year-old man appeared in Tracadie Provincial Court on October 18 in connection with the incident.
