COLE HARBOUR - Police in Halifax say two young men are facing charges for allegedly trying to make fake guns look real and pointing one of them outside a moving vehicle.

A call came into police around 5 p.m. Tuesday after someone said they saw a passenger of a car point a firearm out of his window in Cole Harbour during the rush-hour commute.

Police found the vehicle in question and arrested two people inside during what they called a high-risk traffic stop on the Forest Hills extension.

Two cap guns were allegedly seized and police say the suspects had removed the red tips from the guns to make them look real.

The men, aged 18 and 19, are now facing charges and due in Dartmouth provincial court on Aug. 6.
