Threats Against Woman Result in Arrest, Discoveries

The following story appears in today's Chronicle-Herald. As it turns out, this woman may be lucky to be alive given that the police found a gun and drugs in the man's possession. Those are two items that never mix well. Going beyond just a threat, the man allegedly assaulted her as well. Full story here.

Halifax Regional Police turned up more than they expected during an investigation into a threat allegation against a Lower Sackville man Sunday.
Just before 6 a.m. Sunday, a Clayton Park woman called police to report that she had been threatened by her ex-boyfriend.
During an investigation into the alleged threat, Halifax Regional Police determined that the man both threatened and assaulted the woman.
That led officers to the man inside a Riverside Drive residence in Lower Sackville. Police then obtained a warrant to arrest the man in his home. They executed the warrant at about 5:45 p.m. Sunday.
