A teen arrested following a pepper spray attack in Antigonish is going to Restorative Justice.
RCMP say the incident, which started as a verbal argument, escalated to a physical assault on Notre Dame Ave. in March.
They say three young men pepper sprayed two other young men, who were taken to hospital and treated for non-life-threatening injuries.
Police say three teens were arrested and released from custody on strict conditions.
A boy, 17, from Nyanza, who faces two counts of assault causing bodily harm, was referred to Restorative Justice in Antigonish Youth Court Monday; he’s scheduled to return for a status update Jan. 3.
Police didn’t proceed with charges against a 17-year-old from Baddeck and an 18-year-old from St. Joseph du Moine.
