Do you like this story?
I don't know why criminals in Halifax are such jerks. Beat a guy up? Threaten him with a knife? Criminal activities, sure, but they're traditional and straightforward.
But to ambush a Kijiji seller with bear spray? That's low and cheap. Low-down dirty scumbags making people unreasonably afraid to sell their wares on an otherwise safe and reputable site. Seriously.
This incident happened at a somewhat late but not unheard-of hour for a Kijiji sale: 9:30pm near Gaston Rd. and Lacomb Dr. in the Halifax suburb of Dartmouth.
The victim is a 25-year-old man who said he met two strangers through Kijiji to sell a piece of jewelry. I'm not saying that's a bad part of town -- trailers and two-storey homes -- but it's not a well-traveled public place, know'msayin'?
These a-holes are described as: skinny black guy, 18-23 with a fade haircut and tattoos on the right side of his neck and back of right hand. Classy. He was wearing a black track suit like a true jewelry connoisseur. His sidekick was a white guy with pretty much the same description, except he's white: 5'11" and slim with tattoos on his neck. The other dude's track suit must've been pretty awesome because the victim didn't even notice if the white guy was WEARING clothes.
