A male driver lost control of his vehicle while travelling Westbound on Devonshire Avenue at approximately 4:15 pm yesterday. He jumped the curb, drove over the sidewalk and into a fence near the Devonshire arena. A woman who was walking in the area carrying two small children was clipped by the car and received a minor arm injury. The children were not injured.

The 27 year old driver of the car was issued a ticket for not adhering to the conditions of his licence which required a fully licensed driver to be with him.

Road conditions were slippery at the time of the accident.

Two adult males will appear in court today charged with 5 counts of robbery as well as assault and weapons related offences after an incident at the Menz Bar on Gottingen Street just after midnight.

The two accused, a 32 year old man from Windsor and a 27 year old Halifax man, were inside the establishment and got into a verbal dispute with another male patron which resulted in the patron being assaulted in the washroom of the bar. The accused then robbed two other men at knife point inside the bar before moving out onto the street.

Once on the street, the accused robbed three additional people, 2 men and 1 woman, before fleeing on foot. Responding units were on scene within seconds and apprehended both males on Maitland Street after a brief foot pursuit. All of the property stolen during the robberies was recovered.

One adult male was taken to the QE11 with non life threatening facial injuries. There were no other significant injuries reported.
