Yellowknife RCMP arrested a suspect early Saturday morning after a man smashed a window at a downtown home.

A woman at a home on 52nd Street called police when she saw a man she didn't know standing on her deck at about 3:30 a.m. Saturday.

While she was on the phone with police, the man broke the window of a door.

RCMP arrived and arrested a suspect on a charge of mischief. He was later released from custody.

He will make his first appearance in territorial court on Nov. 19.
