Police called to disturbance on All Souls Lane in Charlottetown Tuesday

A woman brandishing bear spray is now disarmed and in jail after an incident in Charlottetown.

The call came in Tuesday night for a disturbance at an address on All Souls Lane, a small street along the edge of Rochford Square in front of the provincial government offices.

"Police arrived at (the) location and arrested a female for possession of a weapon (bear spray) and making threats," said a statement issued Thursday by the police department.

The suspect woman is a 25-year-old resident of Charlottetown who was taken by police to Sleepy Hollow jail. She will be in provincial court at some later date yet to be determined.

"No injuries were sustained as a result of this occurrence," said the police statement.
