On October 5 at approximately 2:40 a.m., RCMP responded to an incident of a vehicle that had crashed into a home on Birch St. in Digby then left the scene. While members were at the scene of that incident, another call came in, indicating three men were smashing the windows of a vehicle near a restaurant in Digby and were trying to remove the driver from the vehicle. Police quickly determined the vehicle in both incidents was the same.
RCMP officers went to the scene and found the injured driver. The men who were reportedly assaulting the driver had left the scene. The driver of the vehicle was taken to hospital for treatment of what is believed to be serious injuries. Digby RCMP is aware that people witnessed the incident.
Police would like witnesses to both incidents to come forward. The RCMP is aware that there are rumours in the community concerning this incident and are requesting that anyone with information contact them at 902-245-2579.
