Officers responded to a report that a female had been allegedly assaulted and involved in an altercation with male who was believed to be armed at the time.
The man was taken into custody without incident a few hours later and remains in custody pending a court appearance next week.
“This was an isolated incident involving two people who knew each other, at no time was the general public at risk,” says Detachment Commander of the Northern Rockies RCMP Sgt. Steve McLeod.
The victim was provided immediate medical attention and the suspect was apprehended with no further risk to the public or officers, Sgt. McLeod concludes.
