Confrontation over smoking indoors results in weapons charges

Police have charged a man with assault with a weapon in relation to an incident that occurred in Halifax last week.

On January 14 at approximately 6:50 p.m., police responded to a weapons call at the Halifax Transit Terminal on Mumford Road. A man asked another man to stop smoking inside the bus terminal. The man who was smoking produced a knife and threatened the other man. He then left the area on foot. The victim was not physically injured.

Officers arrested the suspect in the area a short time later and seized a knife.

A 20-year-old -man is scheduled to appear in Halifax Provincial Court at a later date to face charges of:

  • Assault with a weapon
  • Uttering threats to cause bodily harm or death
  • Possession of a weapon dangerous to the public peace
