A Timmins woman has been charged in connection to an assault.

Manon Levesque, 31, was charged with one count of assaulting a peace officer, and one count of failure to comply with a probation order.

Police say officers responded to a complaint regarding a disturbance at a shelter this past Sunday involving a client who became abusive and disruptive.

Once arrested, the suspect is alleged to have assaulted the responding officer.

The accused was taken into police custody to await a bail hearing slated for Monday morning at provincial court in Timmins to answer to the charges laid against her.
