May 17, 2021, Terrance Bay, Nova Scotia… Halifax District RCMP has charged a 34-year-old Mill Cove man following an altercation in Terrance Bay.

At approximately 9:40 p.m. on May 16, Halifax District RCMP received a 911 call about an altercation occurring on Terrance Bay Rd. in Terrance Bay. The investigation revealed that two fishermen had observed a vehicle driving erratically towards the area where they had set their nets. When they arrived at their nets, the two men were confronted by seven men in three vehicles. The fishermen were threatened and told to hand over their catch. 

Armed with weapons, the men blocked the fishermen to prevent them from leaving. They then had the fishermen drive to another area nearby where they had other nets set. The men left, and the fishermen were able to call police. One fisherman was injured during the incident after being struck with a weapon. He suffered minor physical injuries.

A short time later, Halifax Regional Police located one of the vehicles involved in Halifax, and the driver was arrested without incident.
