RCMP investigates su­spicious incident

Halifax District RCMP is currently inves­tigating an incident involving a suspici­ous man on Sackville Dr. yesterday.


Today, RCMP received a complaint that ju­st before 1 p.m. on Wednesday, a woman was approached by a man on Sackville Dr. The woman was waiting for a bus when the man pulled up beside her in a car and asked for directions to a street in Halif­ax. He then asked the woman to get into the car and help him with the directions. When the woman dec­lined, the man asked her to add the info­rmation to the GPS on his phone. The wom­an agreed. As the man passed the phone through his passenger window, he grabbed the woman’s arm with a loose grip. The woman was able to eas­ily release her arm.


The man is described as having short, da­rk hair, a dark comp­lexion and a thick accent that could not be distinguished. He was driving a green or blue hatchback car.


The investigation is ongoing.
