Two men from New Brunswick face a number of charges after an alleged attempted robbery and home invasion in Springhill, Nova Scotia.

Southeast District RCMP responded to a request from Nova Scotia RCMP around 6:30 p.m. Tuesday to stop a westbound vehicle on the Trans-Canada Highway.

The alleged incident in Springhill happened around 5 p.m. and the men, both from Riverview, fled from police.

Police say 42-year-old Christopher Glennie and 36-year-old Nathan O'Brien were arrested in Painsec, N.B. on Tuesday, and appeared in court in Moncton on Wednesday where they were remanded into custody.

RCMP say Glennie is facing 12 charges, and O'Brien is facing 15 charges in New Brunswick, including fleeing from police, possession of a restricted firearm with ammunition without a licence, possession of a weapon for dangerous purpose, possession of a firearm in a motor vehicle and possession of property obtained by crime. 

Police say the pair are scheduled to return to court this afternoon for a bail hearing, and are expected to face additional charges in Nova Scotia related to the attempted robbery.
