2 Eskasoni men charged with attempted murder
RCMP believe reports of a chase and a hit and run are connected
Two Eskasoni men have been charged with attempted murder, aggravated assault and assault with a weapon after a person was allegedly chased and then hit by a car in Waycobah, N.S., early Sunday morning.
At around 3:30 a.m., RCMP said they received multiple 911 calls about a male being chased by two men on Portage Road. More 911 calls came in later to report a hit-and-run incident on Highway 105 in Waycobah.
The person who was hit was taken to Inverness Hospital with what police described as "serious but non-life-threatening injuries."
Police later determined the chase and the hit and run were related.
"The victim appears to have been struck by a gold coloured car and then attacked by the occupants with an object," RCMP stated in a news release.
Two men and a woman were arrested Sunday morning, but the woman was later released without charges.
The suspects and victims "are known to one another and this is not considered to have been a random act," RCMP said.
