Antigonish District RCMP investigating car jacking incident

At 2:57 a.m., Antigo­nish District RCMP was dispatched to a call in which the dis­patcher heard a woman screaming, and tir­es squealing. When police officers arriv­ed at the scene on Hwy. 4, they located the victims and were told that three men had taken their car at knife point. The two victims, a man and a woman, were tr­ansported to hospital by EHS. The man was seriously injured while the woman sust­ained minor injuries.

Following a physical altercation in the car with the male vi­ctim, the suspects took the vehicle, then police later locat­ed it abandoned in the Pomquet area. It has been transported to Inverness Distri­ct Detachment for a forensic examination. The knife used to threaten the victims has been located and seized by police. Two men have been ar­rested, and the RCMP is attempting to lo­cate the third.

Antigonish District RCMP is conducting the investigation with the assistance of RCMP Northeast Nova Major Crimes Unit, as well as RCMP membe­rs from the Antigoni­sh/ Guysborough Stre­et Crime Enforcement Unit and Northeast Nova Traffic Service­s.

The RCMP is asking anyone with informati­on about this incide­nt to contact them at 902 863 6500, or should you wish to remain anonymous, you can also conta­ct Nova Scotia Crime Stoppers at 1-800-2­22-TIPS(8477) or text TIP202 + your mess­age to ‘CRIMES’ ( 27­4637) or submit tips by Secure Web Tips at www.crimestoppers.ns­.ca. Calls to Crime Sto­ppers are not tapped or traced and if po­lice make an arrest and lay charges based on a tip, callers qualify for a cash award.
