Investigators arrested a 19-year-old man, who is scheduled to appear in court this June for aggravated assault. They also sought help from the public to identify two other suspects, releasing photos from nearby security cameras.

“With the assistance of the public, the two individuals in the photographs have been identified,” said Saint John Police Force Staff Sergeant Sean Rocca in a news release issued on Friday.

Rocca said the Major Crime Unit arrested a 24-year-old man for Aggravated Assault and a 20-year-old man for Attempted Murder.

Both men appeared in court on Friday.

The Saint John Police would like to thank the public for their assistance.
