At 3:30 p.m. on Sunday, April 19, Halifax Regional Police responded to the 300 block of Portland St for a report of a man struck by a vehicle. The police officer on scene observed the adult female suspect in a vehicle attempting to leave the scene. This female suspect refused to stop for the police officer and attempted to leave in her vehicle, nearly striking the police officer who was forced to jump out of the way to prevent being struck. The female suspect then fled in her vehicle, leaving the scene at a high rate of speed. Prior to the incident in the parking lot, the female suspect and another adult female became engaged in an argument, during which the female suspect struck the female victim in the face. When the victim’s husband attempted to prevent the suspect from leaving before police arrived, the female suspect struck the man with her vehicle. It was at this point that the police member arrived and confronted the suspect. Officers later located the suspect on Lakecrest Drive and arrested her without further incident. No injuries were sustained by any of the people involved. The 35-year-old female suspect faces charges of assault, assault with a weapon, assault police and dangerous driving and will be attending court at a later date.
