Two people were assaulted at a constituency office in Halifax.

According to a Facebook post by MLA Brendan McGuire, a man came into their office in Herring Cove, grabbed his assistant by the throat and slammed her against a wall.

He then proceeded to make racist remarks about a student in their office.

McGuire says the two locked themselves in a closet while the suspect destroyed the office.

Police say it happened around 12:10pm yesterday.

While on scene, police received a second report where the man had damaged property at the Captain William Spry Community Centre.

The suspect has been identified and investigators are trying to locate and arrest him.
