Michael Donald Barrett, 34, of Holyrood has been charged with assault causing bodily harm.
Richard Edward King, 37, of Bristol’s Hope has been charged with two counts of uttering threats, mischief and assault with a weapon.
Upon responding to a call on Lady Lake Road at around 10 a.m., Harbour Grace RCMP determined a man had been assaulted and his truck extensively damaged.
