Victim refuses to co-operate with police investigation

A 29-year-old man is due in Halifax provincial court today, charged with cutting another man on his forearm.

Halifax police were called to the 2100 block of Gottingen Street at about 11:35 p.m. on Tuesday to respond to a disturbance involving a knife.

They found a man with a large cut to his forearm and arrested a suspect.

Police say neither the injured man nor the suspect is co-operating with the investigation.  

Charges against the accused include aggravated assault, assault with a weapon and possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose.

Earlier in the evening, police were called to Cogswell and Albermarle streets to investigate a mugging.

A man told them he was walking on Cogswell Street just before 8 p.m. when two men approached him and asked for money. He turned over a small amount of cash.

Police are looking for two males in their twenties, one white and one black. The white man was wearing a white, hooded sweater; ball hat, had facial stubble and smelled of alcohol. The black male was wearing a black, hooded sweater; dark-coloured pants, had a mullet-style haircut and facial stubble.
