RCMP in Baie Verte say they arrested a teenaged boy from the community of Westport on the Baie Verte Peninsula on Wednesday evening following a complaint of a physical nature involving the suspect.


Corporal Justin Hewlett says the investigation is ongoing into the incident, however he says officers saw cause to arrest the boy on Wednesday evening following the complaint.

Hewlett said he couldn't comment further, as the case involves a minor, however he did say the incident was not related to the recent incidents that have been reported, involving 11-year-old Terrance Collier, and a complaint his parents lodged with RCMP in relation to alleged bullying.

"This is a separate incident entirely," said Hewlett.

The Nor'wester will have more information as it becomes available.
