Bridgewater Town Police are investigating an unusual assault.

Saturday at midnight, police found a seventeen-year-old boy dousing himself with water on the corner of Queen and Dominion Street,

According to the Bridgewater resident he had been attacked near Bridgewater high by another male wielding pepper spray.

Deputy Chief John Collier says emergency response took special measures to help the young man recover.

"(The victim) was then transported to the South Shore Regional Hospital by police for treatment and it was this individual who was later assisted by the Bridgewater Fire Department. Apparently he needed a great deal of decontamination," says Collier.

Collier says the suspect could face charges of assault or assault with a weapon.

Police continue their investigation.


Three people have been arrested after a break-in and theft last night at a seasonal residence in Woodstock.

The male suspects, ages 22, 33 and 42 were apprehended by Lunenburg County RCMP not long after the incident on Dory Mills Road and stolen goods were recovered from a vehicle.

The suspects were released and will appear in Bridgewater court at a later date.

The investigation continues.


The road may be closed but King Street is still open for business.

Starting tomorrow the intersection of Dufferin Street and King Streets including a portion of King Street will closed to through traffic.

Bridgewater Town Engineer, Harland Wyand says the construction of a new storm surge should not impede shoppers.

" We just want to clarify that there should not be an impact. Anyone in the travelling public should feel free to come in to King Street and park in South parkade or along King Street during the construction period, "says Wyand.

Wyand says pedestrian walk-ways will also be accessible.

It will take workers at least two weeks to construct a new storm surge underneath the roadway.
