Parking lot fight
A 34-year-old man is facing charges after officers were dispatched to a report of two men squaring up for a fist-fight in the parking lot of a west end plaza, Thursday afternoon.
Calls started coming in to police dispatchers shortly before 3 p.m. reporting that two men, who had been arguing in a large parking lot at the intersection of Sidney and Bridge streets, appeared to be headed towards a physical altercation.
One of the involved males took off his shirt as the argument ensued, while the other was described as being in a motorized wheelchair.
As officers were responding a fight ensured and the male in a wheelchair sustained minor injuries.
Police arrived and found one of the combatants – the male without a shirt – to be on five separate probation orders. Following an investigation, the 34-year-old male of no fixed address was arrested, charged with assault, breach of probation and held for a bail hearing.
