On Thursday February 4th just before 2:30 p.m., police responded to an upper eastside eatery in response to a woman biting a staff member. After the female refused to follow the staff member’s direction, she responded by throwing a bucket full of cigarette butts and ashes inside the restaurant. The staff member attempted to detain the individual for the mischief that she caused and as a result the woman bit the man in the arm and fled from the area in a vehicle. Police were able to locate the vehicle about 90 minutes later at a lower eastside motel where the 24year old Scarborough woman was arrested. The woman was charged with Assault Cause Bodily Harm and Mischief Under $5000.00. She will speak to these matters during her court appearance in March of this year.
