He will appear in the Blenheim District Court on January 21.

An 18-year-old woman was also arrested on Thursday about 7.50pm and charged with assault with intent to injure after she allegedly assaulted another young woman early on January 12.

She was to appear in court today, Mr Holdaway said.

A man was arrested about 5.05pm on Thursday and charged with common assault, obscene language and trespass in relation to historic family violence matters, Mr Holdaway said.

He was held in custody to appear in court on Friday.

A 39-year-old man was arrested about 12.15pm in Charles St for fighting, Mr Holdaway said. He received a pre-charge warning and was released.
