RCMP arrest woman after assault
Inverness County District RCMP has charged a woman for assaulting a road safety flag person on Little Mabou Rd. in Colindale.
At approximately 7:15 a.m. yesterday, police received a complaint of an assault on Little Mabou Rd. in a construction zone. Police learned that a safety flag person had been conducting traffic control when a woman approached her and voiced her opinion about how the road work wasn’t being completed properly. When the flag person advised the woman to contact the proper government department to voice her concerns, the woman became irate and assaulted the flag person.
Police arrested a 63-year-old woman, from Port Hood, without incident, a short time later. The woman has since been released on conditions and will be facing one charge of assault. She will appear in Port Hawkesbury Provincial Court at a later date.
