An officer’s call for backup sent police in White Rock racing “Code 3” to the corner of Blackwood Street and Thrift Avenue Thursday morning.

Sgt. Joel Glen said the constable was responding to a report of a female in distress when he put out the call for help around 10:45 a.m.

“When he arrived there… she resisted and tried to attack him,” Glen said, noting the fracas caught the attention of several passersby.

“He ran around the back of the car and she continued to chase him. A little struggle ensued.”

There were no weapons involved and no injuries reported. Charges are also not expected.

The woman, estimated to be in her 40s, was arrested under the Mental Health Act and transported to hospital, Glen said.
