At approximately 12:05 p.m. police were called to the intersection of Woodland Avenue and Micmac Boulevard in Dartmouth for a report of an assault. A 56-year-old Dartmouth man was crossing Woodland Avenue when he was struck from behind by a man who was not known to him. When a bystander intervened, the man produced a knife, fled to a waiting vehicle and left the area.

A vehicle matching the description from the earlier incident was traveling south on Victoria Road when it struck a vehicle in front of it. The driver didn’t stop and fled the area. There were no injuries reported.

At approximately 1 p.m. a man fitting the description from the earlier incident entered Crescent Gold and Diamonds at 21 Micmac Boulevard. The man asked to see a piece of jewelry and then fled the store with it. When a security officer attempted to stop them the suspect produced a knife and continued to flee.

The suspect was arrested a short time later in the area by patrol members and the East Divisional Commander. A K9 team conducted a track and located the stolen jewelry he stole.
