Investigators in the General Investigation Section of the Integrated Criminal Investigation Division are seeking the public’s assistance to identify a man involved in a robbery in Dartmouth two weeks ago.
On August 6 at approximately 8:30 p.m., a 46-year-old man reported he was on a Halifax Transit bus on Pinecrest Drive in Dartmouth when he got into an argument with two other men. The victim was pushed off the bus by the men and assaulted. During the incident, the victim’s duffle bag fell to the ground and one of the suspects took his wallet which contained a quantity if cash. The victim was taken by EHS to the hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries and later released.
On August 11, while patrolling the area of Primrose Street in Dartmouth, officers observed one of the suspects from this incident. At 10:49 a.m., officers arrested a 32-year-old Dartmouth man for assault causing bodily harm.
