Assault at the pub in Masset

  • Mar. 1, 2006 7:00 a.m.

Masset RCMP were called out after a man assaulted another man with a beer bottle in Mile Zero pub about 2 am Saturday (Feb. 25), but couldn’t get it because the doors were locked.
Corp. Bob Isaacs said police had to phone the pub and ask staff to open the door so they could get in. The doors were apparently locked after the incident, he said, so that the alleged assailant couldn’t get back inside. (People inside would have been able to get out, he said – the doors were only locked from the outside.)
By the time police arrived, the suspect was no longer outside, Corp. Isaacs said. A man inside was taken to hospital with injuries, he said. The man, a Masset resident, stayed in hospital overnight.
Police are investigating the incident.
