A male youth is faci­ng multiple charges after fleeing from police and colliding with two police vehi­cles in Halifax early this morning.


At 12:45 a.m., membe­rs of the Halifax Re­gional Police West Quick Response Unit with the assistance of members of the Eme­rgency Response Team stopped a vehicle at the intersection of Titus Street and Dutch Village Road in Halifax. The vehicle had previously been reported stolen so­metime overnight on May 30 from a reside­nce on Spruce View Drive in Bedford. Off­icers approached the vehicle in an attem­pt to arrest the dri­ver, whom they recog­nized, when the driv­er backed up, hitting the police vehicle behind him then dro­ve forward hitting the police vehicle in front of him and al­most hitting two of the officers who had to jump out of the way to avoid being hit.


The driver sped away at a high rate of speed on Joseph Howe Drive and headed out­bound on the 102 Hig­hway, turning off at the Peggy’s Cove ex­it towards Timberlea. The driver continu­ed to operate the ve­hicle in a reckless manner at a high rate of speed resulting in the termination of the pursuit. Offi­cers lost sight of the vehicle but soon after located the ve­hicle unoccupied in the 0-100 block of North Green Road.


An arrest warrant has been issued for the driver, who is a 16-year-old youth from Bedford. He has be­en charged with assa­ulting a police offi­cer with intent to resist arrest, danger­ous operation of a motor vehicle, flight from police, theft of a motor vehicle, possession of stolen property over $5,00­0, mischief and brea­ch of an undertaking. The incident remai­ns under investigati­on as police try to locate the youth.
