Police in Sault Ste. Marie charged a 26-year-old woman with several offences following an incident Monday morning.

Police were called around 8 a.m. to respond to reports of an unwanted person on Wellington Street West “who was damaging property and threatening people in the area.”

“Upon arrival, officers attempted to speak with the accused,” police said in a news release Wednesday.

“The accused grabbed an umbrella and pointed it at officers in a threatening way. Officers told the accused to drop the umbrella several times, but the accused ran toward officers with it raised. Officers safely gained physical control of the accused, and they were arrested.”

Further investigation revealed the suspect had exposed her genitalia to multiple people before police arrived, had urinated on property and screamed and threatened people in the area.

“No physical injuries were sustained,” police said.

Charges include assaulting police with a weapon, mischief under $5,000, committing an indecent act, causing a disturbance and uttering threats.

The accused was released on an undertaking and is scheduled to appear in court on June 10.
