-A Dartmouth woman was assaulted in a home invasion where her family was threatened and she was hit with the butt of a gun.


Police were called to Albro Lake Road just after midnight on Wednesday after a woman called to say a man came to her door to tell her that someone was throwing rocks at her house. When she went outside to check she didn’t notice any damage.When she went back inside, police say she saw the man inside her home.


He then grabbed her and hit her with what she believed to be the butt of a gun, and also threatened to harm her family. The victim eventually got away and ran out of the house.

The 22-year-old Halifax man was found and arrested is now facing yet-to-be-determined charges and police don’t believe the act was random.

 

-Halifax-area students who rely on so-called courtesy rides on school buses may be forced to find a new way to class, and some parents concerned about safety.

Halifax Regional School Board said it’s cutting down on the number of seats available for students who live within walking distance of their school but are allowed to hop on buses passing by with empty seats.


Doug Hadley, a spokesperson for the school board, said he expects anywhere from several dozen to 100 students could be affected.

 

He said the few seats available for courtesy riders will go to students who live furthest away from their school.
