Police investigate after 16-year-old-boy assaulted at Prince of Wales Collegiate

Police were called to a report of an assault at Prince of Wales Collegiate (PWC) in St. John’s on Thursday.

The Royal Newfoundland Constabulary (RNC) said in a statement released late Thursday evening that a 16-year-old boy suffered serious injuries and required medical attention following a violent assault at the centre-city high school. Multiple RNC officers, with Operational Patrol Services (OPS), Criminal Investigation Division (CID), Forensic Identification Services (FIS), and Police Dog Services (PDS), along with paramedics from Eastern Health responded to the scene shortly before noon.

The teen who was the alleged victim of the attack was taken to the Janeway Hospital to receive medical treatment. The Newfoundland and Labrador English School District says PWC went into secure school mode immediately after the incident and families were informed. On the advice of the RNC, students were dismissed from secure school mode around 2:00 p.m.

The RNC has assembled a Major Case Management Team to investigate the event, and request any witnesses, or anyone with video footage, contact the police. Investigators are seeking any information and video footage in the noted areas:

  • Paton Street
  • Elizabeth Avenue, from Westerland Road to Freshwater Road
  • Anderson Avenue

  • Keegan Court
  • Cowperthwaite Court
  • Mitchell Court

A Major Case Management Team dedicates resources from multiple sections of the RNC CID, promoting efficient and systematic investigation of significant criminal events.

Anyone who is experiencing stress or mental health crisis as a result of this event, please reach out to the provincial mental health crisis line for support through 8-1-1.

The RNC request that anyone with information to assist contact the RNC at 729-8000 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477). You can now provide information anonymously on the NL Crime Stoppers Website at or use the P3Tips app #SayItHere

Two pedestrians sent to hospital following separate collisions

Two separate collisions in the centre of St. John’s on Saturday evening sent two pedestrians to hospital, neither with life-threatening injuries.

Emergency crews were called to the intersection of Crosbie Road and Terra Nova Road at about 6:30 p.m. after a pedestrian was struck while crossing the street. Glare from oncoming headlights is reported to have been a contributing factor as the driver of a sedan failed to notice the individual on a crosswalk.

Paramedics took the injured person to hospital with what were described as non life-threatening injuries. The vehicle involved sustained damage to its front end and windshield. Police closed the road for close to an hour as they investigated.

Shortly before 8 p.m., a second collision occurred a short distance away at the intersection of Columbus Drive and Old Pennywell Road. An individual using a kick scooter was struck while crossing the road. Paramedics assisted the rider to a waiting ambulance, taking them to hospital with injuries not believed to be serious.

Fire causes serious damage to downtown apartment

An evening fire caused serious damage to one downtown apartment on Monday.

Emergency crews were called to the west end of Water Street at about 7:30 p.m. after a passerby noticed smoke coming from the second-storey window of a home. When firefighters arrived on scene they discovered fire in the bedroom of an upstairs apartment. No one was home at the time, and crews were able to quickly knock down the bulk of the fire.

An occupant of the downstairs apartment evacuated the residence as crews fought the blaze. The fire caused significant damage to the upstairs unit, while the downstairs apartment sustained some smoke and water damage.

Water Street was closed west of Leslie Street as personnel worked. After fighting the fire for a little over an hour the scene was left with the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary for investigation.
