One man is in custody, while a woman with a warrant out for her arrest escaped officers, after a flurry of police activity on Kenmount Road late Thursday afternoon.

The Royal Newfoundland Constabulary said it responded to a call from someone who reported a woman, who was wanted by police, was inside a store.

It's unclear how the person who notified police knew the woman had a warrant out for her arrest.

Officers tried to arrest her, but a man intervened. He was arrested and charged with assaulting a police officer, resisting arrest and obstruction of justice, according to the RNC. 

The woman got away and police said she is still at large. 

Police said the investigation is ongoing.
