Police have arrested a woman on assault charges after investigating an alleged knife fight that was reported Sunday afternoon.
RCMP responded to a call at the 500-block of Victoria Ave. in Cranbrook by a woman who had been assaulted at a nearby park.
The assault victim said there was a group hanging out at the park when another woman began fighting with her, and pulled out a knife and attempted to attack her.
