The General Investigation Section of the Integrated Criminal Investigation Division and Nova Scotia Crime Stoppers are asking for the public’s help in solving an assault.
At approximately 3:45 a.m. on October 4, 2015, a 21-year-old male was standing on Salter Street in the 5100 block of Halifax trying to get a taxi when he was approached from behind by an unknown man.
The suspect punched the victim in the face, causing him to fall to the ground. A witness advised police that there was a second man who also punched the victim. The suspects left the area on foot heading towards Barrington Street, possibly with a number of other men. The victim attended the hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries, during which it was determined his jaw was broken in two places as a result of the assault. The victim later called the police from hospital.
The suspects, both Caucasian, are described as being in their twenties. One man, who was wearing a grey hooded sweatshirt, stands approximately six feet tall with a stocky build and is either bald or had a buzz cut. The second suspect was wearing dark clothing and is of average height. The investigation into this matter continues.
