A Guelph female was arrested Saturday evening, almost three weeks after allegedly pulling a knife on another female during an argument downtown, report Guelph police.

On August 8, two females were reportedly arguing near the bus terminal on Carden Street when one brandished a knife and held it to the other’s throat while threatening to stab her. The victim grabbed her wrist and struck the female in the face, causing her to drop the knife.

The suspect fled and the victim picked up the spring-loaded knife which was later turned over to police.

On Saturday night the female was located downtown and was arrested following a short foot chase.

A 25-year-old Guelph female is charged with assault with a weapon, possessing a weapon for a dangerous purpose, possessing a prohibited weapon and three counts of possessing a weapon contrary to a prohibition order.

She was held for a bail hearing and later released to appear in a Guelph court Sept. 17.
