At 2:55 a.m. on Sunday, October 2 Halifax Regional Police responded to a call of a male having possibly been stabbed on Ochterloney Street near its intersection with Prince Albert Road. Responding officers found a 47-year-old man suffering from a significant laceration to his hand. The man indicated he had been assaulted by a group of males not known to him who had approached him in the street. A knife was introduced during the altercation and the victim suffered the injury to his hand. A number of patrol units responded and a short time later five teenage males were arrested as they exited a nearby wooded area. As a result of investigation by the Patrol, Forensic Identification and General Investigative Units two of the males, both 17, face a charge of Aggravated Assault. Bail Hearings will be held for each of them on Oct. 2. The victim was transported to hospital for treatment of his injuries, which were not life-threatening. Three of the males arrested were released without charge during the course of the investigation.
