Saint John police have arrested a second person after a man was allegedly assaulted and held captive at an encampment for two days.

Police responded to a Broadview Avenue encampment on Friday afternoon.

A 42-year-old man found inside the encampment was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Police arrested a 37-year-old man, who was remanded to jail until his next court date later in May.

A second person was taken into custody earlier this week. The 26-year-old was released on conditions, including to appear in court in late July.
