Two men and a youth are facing charges after a “disturbance” in Torbrook, N.S., Friday night.
In a release, the RCMP said officers responded to a report of a disturbance at a home on Torbrook Road at 7 p.m.
“While responding to the scene, RCMP officers learned that a person had been stabbed and another person was in possession of a firearm,” it said.
Police arrested three men and one youth. Officers also seized two rifles, one of which was loaded.
The release said the victim was later found at a home in Greenwood and it was determined he had suffered non-life-threatening injuries.
Derek Scott Rice, 47, of Paradise was charged with three counts of assault, break and enter and commit, and possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose. He was remanded into custody and is scheduled to appear in Annapolis Royal Provincial Court Tuesday morning.
A 31-year-old man from Lawrencetown was released on conditions and is scheduled to appear in court at a later date to face charges of assault and break and enter and commit.
As well, a 17-year-old male was released on conditions and will appear in youth justice court at a later date to face one charge of aggravated assault.
Police say the fourth person arrested was released without charges.
