Police are looking for a group of about six people after three teens were sprayed with mace and one was stabbed after getting off a Metro Transit bus in Eastern Passage on Sunday night.
Halifax RCMP say the incident began when the victims got into what police describe as a heated exchange with another group at the Dartmouth bus terminal.
“They were exchanging words,” said RCMP Staff Sgt. Peter Ferguson.
Police say the victims then boarded the bus and the larger group followed them to McCormack’s Lane in Eastern Passage in a grey or blue four-door car.
At about 6:40 p.m., police say the group sprayed the teens with mace as they walked off the bus. During the ensuing altercation, police say one of the teens was also stabbed.
The teen was taken to hospital by with a non-life threatening injury while paramedics treated the other two on scene.
The suspects fled on foot and it’s believed they then left the area in the car that they parked a short distance away.
There have been no arrests and Ferguson said police don’t know the ages of those in the opposing group.
“There is a possibility they might have known each other,” Ferguson said.
Anyone with information about the case is asked to contact the RCMP or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477. — Metro Halifax
