A man was arrested today and faces charges in connection with an assault that took place Monday night in the city’s south end.
At approximately 10 p.m., Halifax Regional Police responded to a weapons call at Saint Mary’s University. Two men, aged 19 and 21, were injured after a confrontation with two other men. During the altercation, one of the suspects produced a knife. A struggle ensued and the two victims received cuts that were non-life-threatening. Both men were treated at hospital and released. Investigators do not believe this was a random incident, as all four men had been involved in an argument earlier in the evening.
This morning at 9 a.m., a 22-year-old man turned himself in to police at Police Headquarters. He is scheduled to appear in Halifax Provincial Court this afternoon to face charges of assault with a weapon, assault causing bodily harm and possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose.
