A 47-year-old woman is in custody and facing assault charges after police were called to a home in Conception Bay South Thursday.
RNC officers responded to a disturbance complaint at the home around 1 p.m.
Officers arrested the woman at the scene after she allegedly assaulted a 70-year-old woman.
The victim did not require medical attention.
The 47-year-old will appear in court Friday on charges of assault and mischief.
Police say the two are known to each other.
