Quebec man sentenced for February assault

A Quebec man was sentenced last week to two and a half years in prison after an aggravated assault in Campbellton.

Storm Martin, 22, of Listiguj, Que., twice appeared in Campbellton Provincial Court in February, when he was charged with failure to comply with a probation order and one charge of aggravated assault.

It came after Campbellton RCMP responded on Feb. 11 to an altercation between three individuals on Andrew street in Campbellton.

“When police arrived at the scene, they located a 23-year-old man on the side of the road,” reads a February news release from the New Brunswick RCMP.

“He was transported to the hospital with what were believed to be serious, life-threatening injuries.”

Police arrested Martin the next day and remanded him into custody prior to his first two court dates.

A 29-year-old man, identified by police as, Desmond Issac Barnaby, was also charged in February with aggravated assault.

It is unknown if Barnaby will also serve jail time, but Mounties say the investigation is ongoing.

Police say Martin made a third appearance on May 30, when a judge handed down a two and a half year sentence, minus time served.
