Breaking: Another suspect bites the dust
Night watcher suspect is released
After holding a night watcher suspect in custody overnight, Halifax police were forced to release the man around 6 a.m. this morning saying they had insufficient evidence to keep him in custody.
This is the second time police have been forced to release a suspect without charge who was thought to be have a connection to the night watcher case.
Const. Brian Palmeter says this man was not connected to the previous case of a night watcher suspect. No description of the man has been released.
“They spoke to the man throughout the day but were unable to connect him to the incident,” says Palmeter.
At 5:19 a.m. on Friday police received a call that a woman on the 6100 block of South Street woke up to find a man was in her apartment.
Today police were able to confirm that the woman found the man standing in the doorway of her bedroom.
The woman was described as “university aged.” Other roommates were in the apartment at the time of the break and enter.
Upon discovery, the man walked out of the residence and was picked up by police at 6 a.m. in the area by Gorsebrook Junior High school on South Street. A witness reported him as matching the woman’s description.
