Police issue further warning for folks in Bridgewater

by Gayle Wilson

As the manhunt continued for Tobias Charles Doucette who allegedly assaulted a woman and stabbed a police officer and a police dog, the Bridgewater Police Service issued a warning for people to stay away from the town's Glen Allan Drive, Aberdeen and LaHave Street areas on the afternoon of July 24.

The South Shore Regional Hospital was in lockdown and Bridgewater Transit was rerouted as a result.

Nova Scotia RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Jennifer Clarke said she had no further information when LighthouseNOW contacted her for an update. "I wish I did. Hopefully we'll have a result here soon, but I honestly don't have an update and they're basically on the scene and doing their thing right now."

Officers from the Bridgewater Police Service, Lunenburg district RCMP and other RCMP jurisdictions across the province, as well as personnel from Canada's Department of National Defence continue to hunt for the 31-year-old-man, following events that first began July 20.

FURTHER UPDATE TO FOLLOW.
