Digby RCMP hoping for tips from public after driver assaulted


Digby RCMP are investigating a bizarre case.

The Mounties were called to a home on Digby's Birch St. very early Saturday morning, after a vehicle had crashed into the house and left the scene.

While officers were at the scene of the crash, another call came in that three men were smashing the windows of a vehicle near a local restaurant and were trying to remove the driver.

Police quickly determined the vehicle in both incidents was the same.

When RCMP arrived to investigate the second call, they found the injured driver, who had to be taken to hospital for treatment of what is believed to be serious injuries.

As for the men who were reportedly assaulting the driver, they left the scene before police arrived.

The Mounties say they know people witnessed the incident and are aware of rumours circulating around the community.

They're asking anyone with information to contact the Digby RCMP detachment.
