Assault With A Weapon

On April 16, 2009 at approximately 12:20 PM, Saskatoon Police responded to a 9-1-1 call in the 800 block of 20th St West where a woman with a sword was apparently assaulting another woman with a baby.

Police arrived and found one woman suffering from a laceration to her hand and contusions to her arm. She then directed police to the suspects who were still in the area. A brief foot pursuit ended with one woman being arrested and another male was later found and arrested in a nearby residence. The victim was transported to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Charged with Assault Causing Bodily Harm, Assault with a Weapon, Possession of a Controlled Substance, and 3 breaches of an Undertaking is a 28 year old female, and in addition, a 31 year old male was arrested on outstanding warrants for breach of a Statutory Release and Breach of Undertaking.

Both will appear in Provincial Court tomorrow morning.
