On Sunday, two fishermen were attacked by a group of seven armed men in Terence Bay who took their catch. The fishermen in Terence Bay were threatened and told to hand over their catch, and after they did so, the attackers struck one victim with a weapon, inflicting minor injuries upon him.
The victims stated that they saw a vehicle driving erratically towards the area where their nets were placed. Seven men in three vehicles attacked the fishermen, demanded their catch and blocked them from leaving the area. The fishermen stated that the men who attacked them were armed and told them to drive to another area where other nets had been set. After those seven men left, the fishermen called the police.
The very same evening, Halifax Regional Police located a vehicle that was supposedly involved in the incident and arrested the driver. The suspect is Jared Luben Young, 34, and he was charged with kidnapping, robbery, forcible confinement, uttering threats, possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose and theft over $5,000. The police are still looking for six other men who attacked the fishermen.
Anyone with information about the incident or the men involved is asked to contact Halifax District RCMP at 902-490-5020. Also, those willing to help can make an anonymous report to Nova Scotia Crime Stoppers by calling toll-free at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
