Halifax Regional Police responded to an incident of property damage that occurred this morning in Dartmouth.
At 2:21 a.m., a Halifax Regional Police patrol officer was approached by a man who had been salting a pathway that connects Albro Lake Road and Farrell Street. He said he noticed two males dressed in black walking on the path towards him. When he was approximately 10-12 feet away, the males huddled together and then started running in the opposite direction towards Farrell Street.
