On Monday, July 4 at approximately 10:35 PM, members from the Cape Breton Regional Police Service North Division responded to a Motor Vehicle Accident on Clifford Street in North Sydney.
Upon arrival, police were advised that a 25-year-old male was struck by a vehicle. This male person had allegedly pointed a firearm at the persons in the vehicle, and as a result the 21-year-old vehicle driver struck the male with the vehicle. The vehicle also collided into a residence on Clifford Street. The 25-year-old who was struck by the vehicle then fled the scene before arrival of police.
Upon police arrival, the driver of the vehicle was arrested at the scene. The male was cleared by EHS. There were no other injuries reported by the persons in the vehicle.
The 25-year-old male and the 21-year-old vehicle driver are known to each other.
Police were able to later locate and arrest the 25-year-old male, where he was first treated by EHS and then transported to the Cape Breton Regional Hospital with minor injuries. He was discharged from the hospital with what is believed to be non-life threatening injuries at this time, and transported to CBRPS lock-up.
Members from the Major Crime/ GIS unit continue to investigate, with assistance from members of the Forensic Identification, Traffic Safety and K9 units.
