Cape Breton Regional Police are investigating an alleged altercation that left one person injured and two vehicles damaged in Membertou, N.S.
Police responded to complaints at Maliktuk Court and Wally Bernard Awti around 1:30 p.m. Tuesday.
Police say four people were involved in the alleged altercation, which sent one woman to hospital with minor injuries to her arm.
Surveillance video appears to show several individuals in an altercation, with some holding what look to be baseball bats.
Two vehicles were also damaged.
“We just know that we had two separate complaints and we’ve since determined that they're connected,” said Desiree Vassallo, spokesperson for the Cape Breton Regional Police. “The vehicles were at the two separate addresses and we know at this point they were both damaged, but in terms of the sequence of events, that's what they are trying to piece together right now.”
The altercation has prompted Membertou Chief Terry Paul to issue a statement to his community. Paul says he's working with police and legal counsel, to deal with the situation.
Police say the four individuals are known to one another and charges are pending.
