Assault charges pending after knife incident in Victoria hotel

Ruckus raised at downtown hotel, police discover blood on walls, floor

A Victoria woman is facing charges of assault with a weapon after an incident Thursday night at the Capital City Centre Hotel on Douglas Street.

A little after 8 p.m., Victoria police attended the fourth floor of the hotel after receiving a 911 call about a woman with a knife, who was said to be yelling and banging on one of the suite doors.

When police arrived they were told someone had been injured, said Const. Mike Russell, and found blood on the walls and floors.

The victim, a distraught man, was able to fend off the woman, Russell said. The 39-year-old woman was found in an adjacent suite. She was arrested and taken to hospital with minor injuries.
