Police are requesting the public’s assistance identifying two suspects in a serious assault that occurred earlier this month in Halifax.
At 1 a.m., on January 1, 2015, police responded to the Alterego café located at 2193 Gottingen Street after receiving a report that a man had thrown a table through the front window of the business. Shortly after, officers located the man lying on Cunard Street. He had serious head injuries that were believed to have been sustained as a result of a fall. He was transported to hospital by EHS where he remains today. Investigators have yet to speak with him due to the seriousness of his injuries.
On January 22, investigators received information that the man may have been the victim of an assault. This was confirmed yesterday when investigators retrieved video surveillance from the area that showed two suspects assaulting the victim shortly before he was located by officers.
Police are releasing a picture of the suspects taken from the video surveillance. The first suspect is described as a white man in his twenties, 5’10”, with a small build. At the time of the incident, he was wearing grey skinny jeans, a white shirt, and a black jacket, with a long blue scarf wrapped around his neck. The second suspect is described as a black woman in her twenties, with long black hair. At the time of the incident, she was wearing a long blue shirt and blue jeans.
Anyone with information about the identity of the suspects or about this incident is asked to call Halifax Regional Police at 902-490-5016.
