On August 26, 2014 at 7:29 pm, HRP officers responded to an assault in progress in the area of Dublin and Almon Streets in Halifax involving a male suspect and a female victim. The incident occurred in a vehicle and both parties involved are known to one another. Several witnesses intervened and after the vicitm left the vehicle, the suspect fled the area in the vehicle. The suspect was later located at a residence on St Pauls Street where he fought the arresting officer and actively resisted his arrest. The officer was not injured. The accused, a 44-year-old Halifax man, was held in custody overnight and will appear in Halifax Provincial Court later today to face charges of assault, assault police and resisting arrest.
