Man charged for Aggravated Assault with ATV

May 29, 2018

A 39-year-old Reserve Mines man will appear in Sydney Provincial Court today for Aggravated Assault connected to a motor vehicle-pedestrian collision in Glace Bay.

Cape Breton Regional Police responded to reports of the collision in the parking lot at the Sterling Mall at approximately 3:30 PM May 28th, where witnesses reported a male was struck by an ATV while walking through the parking lot, and that the ATV then drove away from the scene towards McKeen Street. EHS transported the 40-year-old victim to Glace Bay Hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.

Witnesses and the victim helped confirm the identity of the driver, whom officers located at a residence on Dolphin Crest, where he was arrested. The pedestrian and driver are known to each other.

Investigators later charged Stephen Troy MacDonald with Aggravated Assault and Assault with a Weapon, and he was remanded to the Cape Breton Correctional Centre until his appearance in Court.
