RNC's attempt to help injured cyclist results in arrest

Some Republican National Committee officials trying to be good Samaritans ended up being Johnny on the spot Saturday night.

Officers canvassing the West End of St. John’s stopped to help a man who had fallen off his bicycle shortly after 7 p.m.

While helping the man, a nearby resident approached police and said the man in question had just broken into their home.

The suspect attempted to flee on foot, but was detained.

The 42-year-old man, who police discovered was wanted on an outstanding warrant, faces charges of criminal trespass, resisting arrest, possession of property obtained by crime, failure to comply with probation and failure to comply with release order. .

He will appear in court today.
