A woman and another were walking through the store entrance, according to an RCMP news release issued Thursday.

An “unknown object” carried by another individual emerged from the bag they were carrying and attacked and injured the woman, the RCMP statement said. The woman was treated in hospital.

“We have no further information as the second person left the scene shortly after,” police said.

Police stress that the investigation is still in its early stages, but preliminary details do not indicate that the incident was malicious and poses a risk to the public.
