Vic­to­ria man fac­ing charges

The Compass - - EDITORIAL OPINION -

A 22-year-old male res­i­dent of Vic­to­ria is fac­ing crim­i­nal charges fol­low­ing an in­ci­dent with po­lice on Sept. 6 that be­gan just af­ter the noon hour in Har­bour Grace.

Mem­bers of the Trinity Con­cep­tion District RCMP at­tempted to ini­ti­ate a traf­fic stop with a ve­hi­cle on Cathe­dral Street, but the driver of the ve­hi­cle failed to stop and at­tempted to evade po­lice.

Af­ter a short dis­tance the male driver of the ve­hi­cle fled on foot into a wooded area where of­fi­cers en­gaged in a foot pur­suit, which re­sulted in the ar­rest.

The man faces charges of flight from po­lice and dan­ger­ous op­er­a­tion of a mo­tor ve­hi­cle and is sched­uled to ap­pear in court on Nov. 21.
