Two teens are facing charges following a brawl near a city bus terminal in Dartmouth.

Police say officers were dispatched Thursday to a Metro Transit terminal in Dartmouth at around 11:30 a.m. when a report came in about 15 youths being disruptive.

Halifax Regional Police say when officers asked the youths to leave the property, they refused and began fighting with each other.

During the fracas, a male officer broke one of his hands.

A 14-year-old girl is facing charges of causing a disturbance, assaulting a police officer and resisting arrest.

A 17-year-old boy has been charged with causing a disturbance, resisting arrest and carrying a concealed weapon — a knife.
