HALIFAX - A Halifax-area teen faces several charges in connection with a stabbing at a public transit bus terminal.

Police say they arrested a 16-year-old boy on Kingfisher Road on Tuesday, shortly after executing a search warrant at a home in Lower Sackville.

The teen faces charges including aggravated assault, possession of a weapon dangerous to the public and carrying a concealed weapon.

Police had been searching for three suspects following Saturday's incident that began after a man walking past the transit terminal on Cobequid Road got involved in a dispute with two young men.


Pepper spray was used in the ensuing melee and a 20-year-old and a 32-year-old were stabbed.

The older victim was treated in hospital and released but the younger one underwent surgery.
