Child grabbed by angry driver

A childish prank led to a complaint of assault on July 15.

Police responded to a call from a woman who told them her two sons, age 10 and seven, were picking rosehips off the bushes along the road and throwing them at one another in the 200-block of Beach Drive.

One of the thrown rosehips hit a passing vehicle, the man driving took exception to this and confronted the boys.

At one point, the mother told police, the 59-year-old man grabbed the younger child by the shirt collar and yelled at him.

Although he was not injured, the boy was emotionally shaken up.

The driver was subsequently identified and issued a promise to appear. The matter has been referred to Crown Counsel for review.
