HALIFAX – A 31-year-old man faces a slew of charges after a Halifax Transit bus was struck by a projectile over the weekend.

Police and firefighters responded to the scene on the Bedford Highway last Saturday afternoon, where they say an undisclosed projectile struck the bus and sent a woman to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

That day, officers searched a residence in the Halifax community of Rockingham, where they found and seized multiple firearms. Nobody was home at the time.

Police say a man turned himself in the next day and was released without charges, but on Tuesday, they arrested a different man at the Rockingham residence.

That man will appear in court at the end of August to face one count each of property damage, using explosives causing property damage, arson causing property damage, and assault causing bodily harm.


He will also face four charges each of unauthorized possession of a firearm and unsafe storage of a firearm.
