Woman who threatened employee with knife at Bonnyville business captured in Elk Point

A woman who evaded police after she pulled a knife in a Bonnyville business has been captured in Elk Point.

According to police, “On September 10, at 9:30 p.m., the Bonnyville RCMP were dispatched to a local establishment where a female had pulled a knife and threatened to use it on an employee.”

It is unclear which business in Bonnyville the woman pulled the knife in.

Sgt. Sarah Parke is the Detachment Commander with the Bonnyville RCMP.

“The female fled the scene in a vehicle before RCMP arrived, however with the assistance of the neighbouring RCMP, the female was located in Elk Point and transported back to the Bonnyville Detachment where she was charged with Assault with a Weapon, Possession of a Weapon for a Dangerous Purpose and Uttering Threats,” Sgt. Parke told Lakeland Connect.

A Justice of the Peace released the 23-year-old female from Wainwright on no cash and she’s due to appear in Bonnyville court on October 5.
