Victoria man facing charges
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.
