  • Print

A 17-year-old female is facing several charges after a fight Sunday evening outside a downtown hotel.

Police were called to the 600 block of Balmoral Street after several people were seen fighting outside the hotel. When officers arrived, only one of the participants remained; the 17-year-old female became combative with police, kicking both officers several times in the upper body. Neither of the officers was seriously injured.

The young woman, whose name was not released, faces two charges of assaulting a peace officer and two counts of uttering threats to cause death or bodily harm. She was detained at the Manitoba Youth Centre.
