SUDBURY -- A 32-year-old Sault Ste. Marie woman was arrested and charged with assault causing bodily harm after biting someone.

Sault police said officers were called to a multi-unit residence in the 500 block of Goulais Avenue around 9 a.m. Sunday morning.

"The victim heard a commotion in the hallway," police said in a news release. "When they went to see what was happening, it’s alleged the accused approached them and bit them."

As a result, the accused was arrested. She was released on a promise to appear and has her first appearance in court scheduled for Jan. 4.

"Information for the reason for the commotion or the incident would be speculation at this point," Lincoln Louttit, the corporate communications manager for Sault Ste. Marie Police Service told CTV News in an email.
