Three people arrested following assault in Sheet Harbour


Three people from Sheet Harbour have been arrested following an assault in the community on Saturday.

RCMP say the victim received a phone call to meet with people known to him, drove to a business on Church Point Road, and then walked to Albert Howe Lane.

It was there that police say the victim was assaulted with various weapons, sustained non-life-threatening injuries, and was eventually transported to hospital by EHS.

The search of a home on Albert Howe Lane on Monday resulted in the arrests and the seizure of a firearm, ammunition, cannabis, and various weapons including those alleged to be involved in the incident. 

Twenty-four-year-old Mitchell James Howe and 27-year-old Stephen James Power are scheduled to appear in Dartmouth Provincial Court today to face a number of charges, including assault with a weapon and assault causing bodily harm.

A 28-year-old woman from Sheet Harbour is facing a charge of possession of a weapon for dangerous purpose and is due in court on March 11th.
