Police investigate stabbing, Lower Sackville, N.S.


Police are investigating an assault with weapons that occurred earlier this morning.

At approximately 3:45 a.m., officers from Halifax District RCMP responded to a report of a stabbing outside an apartment on Riverside Dr., Lower Sackville. A preliminary investigation has determined that as a male walked towards the building he was approached by two males who demanded money. When he refused, he was stabbed by one suspect who used a knife, then cut by the other male who had an axe.

The victim fled from his attackers and called police. He was transported to hospital with serious injuries.

The suspects fled into a wooded area and Police Dog Services tracked them to the area of Lois Dr. and Old Beaverbank Rd. The suspects are described as Caucasian wearing dark clothing with faces covered.

Investigators with the General Investigation Section of the Integrated Criminal Investigation Division are asking anyone who may have seen suspects or any suspicious activity around this time to contact Halifax District RCMP at (902) 244-7208 or Halifax Regional Police at 902-490-5180.

Citizens can also contact the Nova Scotia Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477 ), texting TIP202 + your message to ‘CRIMES’ (274637), or by Secure Web Tips at www.crimestoppers.ns.ca . Calls to Crime Stoppers are not taped or traced and if police make an arrest and lay charges based on a tip, callers qualify for a cash reward from $50 – $2000.

The investigation is ongoing.
