A 42-year-old man in a Dartmouth house was beaten with an unknown object in what Halifax Regional Police say was not a random attack.
Two men forced their way into a house in the 0 to 100 block of Primrose Street and struck the tenant several times with an unknown object, said police. Investigators have not said when the attack happened.
The man had several lacerations and was taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
He has since been released.
