Cape Breton Post - - FRONT PAGE -

A man was air­lifted to hos­pi­tal in Hal­i­fax early Sun­day morn­ing fol­low­ing a se­ri­ous as­sault in what po­lice be­lieve was a failed break and en­ter at­tempt.

Ac­cord­ing to the Cape Bre­ton Re­gional Po­lice, the in­ci­dent took place Sun­day shortly be­fore 6 a.m. on Gordie Street in Louis­bourg.

Re­gional po­lice Staff Sgt. Stephen MacKin­non said they are ques­tion­ing a Louis­bourg man in his 20s who they be­lieve is the owner of the home where the as­sault took place.

The in­jured man’s age and home­town have not been re­leased. He sus­tained se­ri­ous head in­juries and was un­re­spon­sive to po­lice at the scene.

Po­lice noted in a re­lease that the two men in­volved in the in­ci­dent may have known each other from a non-vi­o­lent en­counter ear­lier in the week­end.

No other de­tails about the break and en­ter or as­sault were avail­able from po­lice early Sun­day evening. MacKin­non said in­ves­ti­ga­tors were con­duct­ing in­ter­views and work­ing to de­ter­mine ex­actly what hap­pened be­fore re­leas­ing any more in­for­ma­tion.

No charges have been laid in con­nec­tion with the break and en­ter or as­sault.

The re­gional po­lice’s ma­jor crime and foren­sic iden­ti­fi­ca­tion units are in­volved in the in­ves­ti­ga­tion.
