Charges laid in assault
Police have charged a man with weapons-related offences in relation to an incident that occurred yesterday morning in Halifax.
At 8:03 a.m. on July 23 Halifax Regional Police responded to a weapons call in the 3000 block of Devonshire Avenue in Halifax. A caller reported that several men were in a dispute and one of them had a knife.
Officers quickly arrived on scene and arrested the man with the knife. No one was injured, and this is not a random incident as the people involved are known to one another.
Tristan William Murray, 22, of Halifax, will appear in Halifax Provincial Court today to face charges of possession of a dangerous weapon, possession of a prohibited weapon, assault with a weapon, uttering threats to cause bodily harm and causing a disturbance.
