Cape Breton Post - - CAPE BRETON -

A 28-year-old Syd­ney Mines man wanted for an as­sault out­side the Emera Cen­tre North­side has sur­ren­dered to po­lice.

Po­lice say Jason Matthew Gil­lis turned him­self in at the Cape Bre­ton Re­gional Po­lice cen­tral of­fice on Grand Lake Road and was ar­rested at 3 p.m. on Thurs­day.

Ear­lier, po­lice had is­sued a re­quest for public as­sis­tance in lo­cat­ing Gil­lis who faces two charges of as­sault caus­ing bod­ily harm.

The charges come as the re­sult of in­ves­ti­ga­tion into re­ports that two men were as­saulted by Gil­lis when all three were leav­ing the Emera Cen­tre at ap­prox­i­mately 1 a.m. on May 31.

At the time of the in­ci­dent, both vic­tims were taken to Cape Bre­ton Re­gional Hos­pi­tal for treat­ment of non-life-threat­en­ing fa­cial in­juries and one vic­tim was fur­ther treated in Hal­i­fax.

Po­lice ob­tained a war­rant for Gil­lis’s ar­rest af­ter be­ing un­able to lo­cate him.
