A man was arrested in earlier this week for assaulting somebody outside of a Sobeys in Sydney.

Cape Breton Regional Police responded to reports of an altercation outside of the Prince Street Plaza on August 15th. They learned that a 43-year-old man had attacked somebody with what looked like a knife.
