At 0744 hours on this date officers were called to the 0-300 block of Rocky Lake Road in Bedford in response to an injured 33 year old male. Investigation to this point has shown the 33 year old male was assaulted by men known to him in the Rocky Lake Road area. He sustained non-life threatening injuries and was transported to hospital where he was treated and released later this afternoon.
No arrests have been made in relation to this matter and investigators remain onscene at this time and the investigation is continuing.
Over the course of the afternoon several businesses in the Dartmouth area have received phone calls from a party identifying himself as a firefighter. The party continues to instruct the employee of the business to trigger the fire alarm as a routine test to their system. This is a hoax. This causes an undue stress to emergency services and is a crime.
After consultation with Halifax Regional Fire and Emergency Services it has been verified that this is not a practice they employ. Police are now investigating and request that anyone with information in relation to these calls, contact police at (902) 490-5016. Anonymous tips can be sent to Crime Stoppers by calling toll-free 1-800-222-TIPS (8477), submitting a secure web tip at www.crimestoppers.ns.ca or texting a tip – Tip 202 + your message to 274637.
