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.
