A man is facing an attempted murder charge after a downtown Dartmouth robbery that happened on New Year’s Day.
Halifax Regional Police said it was reported at around 9:30 p.m. on Jan. 1, that a man approached a woman at a bank machine, and allegedly hit her in the head with an object before taking her property.
The woman suffered non-life-threatening injuries and was taken to hospital for treatment.
In a Wednesday release, police said that HRP investigators identified the suspect and “were actively seeking him.” They say they arrested 41-year-old Jordan Anthony White on Tuesday night, after a vehicle stop in Cole Harbour.
White was set to appear in court Wednesday to face charges of attempted murder and robbery. He is also facing assault and weapons-related charges.
According to police, the man was also charged with theft in a separate incident that happened at an NSLC store on Chain Lake Drive in Halifax, on Jan. 11.
