At 2:45 p.m., an officer on patrol in the 0–100 Block of Gaston Road in Dartmouth observed a physical disturbance involving several men. The officer pulled over to intervene in the matter when he observed one of the men, who was armed with a baseball bat, strike two other men involved in the dispute. The man then fled to a nearby residence. The officer assessed the injured men, and then proceeded to the residence where the suspect had fled and arrested a 27-year-old Dartmouth man without incident. The accused will be appearing in court on February 25 to face a charge of assault with a weapon. The two men who had been assaulted were treated for minor injuries and released at the scene.
