Halifax Regional Police is requesting the public’s assistance to identify the suspects responsible for a weapon offence on New Year’s Day in Dartmouth.
On Jan. 1 at 1:36 a.m., officers responded to a weapons call that occurred on a Metro Transit bus travelling on Wyse Road. A man and woman were involved in a verbal altercation with four younger women when the man produced what was described as a handgun and pointed it at the heads of two of the victims. The suspects then exited the bus and left the area on foot. As they were leaving the bus, the female suspect punched one of the victims in the face. The victims were not injured and officers have yet to identify the suspects.
