Two men were arrested following reports of a man trying to fight another with a bat at Brolly Square.

Around 3:45 p.m. on Sunday June 10, police attended the area at Emerson Street and Lakelse Avenue and arrested two men, one of whom had a bat.

Officers collected statements but were unable to get a clear version of events, nor would the identified victim cooperate with the investigation.

Both men were taken back to cells, one to sober up safely, the other for outstanding arrest warrants.

Probation breach on Park

A man was arrested for breaching probation after police received a report of an assault on Park Avenue.

On June 10, just before midnight, police were called to the 4600 block of Park Avenue in Terrace. A man was reported to be stomping on another man’s head. Officers located a group nearby and although one man had injuries, all were uncooperative.

One of the men present was found to be breaching a probation order and was arrested as a result.
