Halifax Regional Police has referred an incident that occurred yesterday in Dartmouth to the Serious Incident Response Team (SIRT) for investigation.
Yesterday at 2:55 p.m. police received a report of a woman walking in the roadway of Highway 111. Patrol Officers responded and spoke with the woman, who complied with their request to move to the shoulder of the road where it would be safe to walk.
At approximately 3:15 p.m. police received another report of the same nature. This time, it was reported that a woman was walking in the roadway of Highway 111 and was jumping in front of vehicles. The same officers responded to the call and located the same woman from the previous incident. When they attempted to arrest her for breach of the peace, the 55-year-old Dartmouth woman resisted arrest and assaulted one of the officers. During the arrest, the woman sustained an injury to her arm. She was transported to hospital by EHS for treatment.
It has since been determined that the woman’s arm is broken and the matter has been referred to SiRT for investigation.
