NEW GLASGOW, N.S. - New Glasgow police have charged a 19-year-old man with weapons and firearms offences after an armed attack on a woman in New Glasgow on Nov. 17. In a Nov. 18 release, New Glasgow Regional Police said members received a report just before 9:30 a.m. that a man armed with a knife was chasing a woman on Dalhousie Street.
