A man from Lower Sackville is due in court in Dartmouth, accused of threatening to hurt someone in hospital for treatment.

The RCMP received a call Monday night about a threat made at the Cobequid Emergency Health Centre.

The person in hospital also says the same man assaulted him — but not last night, a couple of weeks ago.

Investigators say they arrested a man near Prince Street in Lower Sackville Monday night, after the threats were made in the hospital.
