A man and woman were charged by Halifax Regional Police for being involved in a fight on Sunday night.
In a release, police said one of the men attacked another man with a chainsaw and tree trimmer outside a home in the 100 to 200 block of Caledonia Road in Dartmouth.
Police say third man intervened and stopped the fight before anyone was injured. He was later struck by a vehicle driven by a woman which appears to have jumped the roadside curb intending to strike the victim.
There were no serious injuries reported.
A 45-year-old Dartmouth man and 47-year-old Lower Sackville woman were charged with assault with a weapon and possession of weapons dangerous to the public.
Police said both are scheduled to appear in Dartmouth provincial court at a future date.
