  • aggravated assault
  • assault with a weapon causing bodily harm
  • uttering threats
  • possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose
  • breaking and entering with intent

The release says officers responded to a report of multiple injured people at a Treaty Lane Extension residence around 4:58 a.m. on Feb. 23. They learned a 25-year-old man had already been taken to hospital.

A 37-year-old woman, a 42-year-old man, and a 33-year-old woman were also taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. A 41-year-old man was arrested at the scene.

Paul is scheduled to appear in court on Wednesday.
