No official word from police yet but a notice was published via social media this morning reportedly by the Dog House Bar on Front Street, notifying customers of a 24-hour police shut down due to a brawl on Saturday morning.
Efforts to verify the post, which says the bar and restaurant was closed for 24-hours from 7pm on November 2 until 7pm Sunday, November 3, were unsuccessful.
The post states that the closure was due to an altercation at 2:08am between two patrons “haveing [sic] a [sic] altercation with there [sic] fists in the centre of the bar area”.
“They were ejected immediatly [sic] from the premises by our Security Team.”
The post goes on to say: “We have cooperated with the BPS 100% with extensive CCV [sic] footage inside and outside the Dog House.”
Police responded to the reported disturbance shortly after 2am on Saturday, where they found a man injured in the car park across the street from the club.
He was transported to the hospital’s Emergency Department via private car, but he “refused treatment for his injuries”.
“A second man, who also sustained lacerations and apparent stab wounds, was transported via ambulance to King Edward the Seventh Memorial Hospital where he was treated for his injuries and discharged.
“Both men were subsequently arrested,” according to TNN.
Meanwhile, the investigation into this incident continues.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Criminal Investigations Unit on 247-1744, the main line on 295-0011 or confidential Crime Stoppers on 800-8477.
