The two 15-year-olds charged in connection with the stabbing of a Halifax police officer each made a brief appearance in Halifax Youth Court on Wednesday.

Steve Bruce, with the Chronicle Herald, reports the pair are from Truro and that Judge Gregory Lenehan remanded both teens to the Nova Scotia Youth Facility in Waterville.

Charges laid against the girl include attempted murder, possession of a weapon, resisting arrest, two counts of theft under $5,000, break and enter, theft and possession of a vehicle, dangerous driving and mischief.

The boy is charged with break and enter, possession of a weapon, two counts of theft under $5,000, theft and possession of a vehicle, possession of a weapon, dangerous driving and mischief.

The boy's bail hearing is scheduled for Friday, while the girl is scheduled back in court on Monday for her bail hearing.

Bruce reports that the crown prosecutor gave notice that they'll seek to have the girl sentenced as an adult if she’s convicted of attempted murder.

Police say Const. Andrew Gordon approached two people seen fleeing from a stolen truck on Highway 102 shortly before 6 a.m. Tuesday.

They say that as Gordon attempted to speak to them, a suspect stabbed him and fled again.

Gordon was taken to hospital where he underwent surgery and is reported to be in stable condition.

The truck had been reported stolen overnight to the Truro Police Service.
