The suspect in an alleged Coldstream assault will remain in custody.

Paul Lyons, 27, appeared in Vernon Provincial Court Thursday and he has been remanded to Kamloops Regional Correctional Centre until Aug. 10 for his next court appearance.

He is facing charges of assault with a weapon, uttering threats, assault and aggravated assault.

On July 26 at about 8:20 p.m., officers responded to a report of a domestic assault off Buchanan Road.

Three people were allegedly beaten with a baseball bat by a man who was known to all three.

The victims — two women and a man — suffered bruises to their legs, arms, torsos and face. The women were taken to hospital and one required surgery for a broken arm.

 

A suspect was arrested several hours later in downtown Vernon.
