A 25-year-old woman is facing weapons charges after being arrested Tuesday with bear spray and a knife, according to Charlottetown police.

Police were called to a disturbance at an apartment Tuesday night on All Souls Lane.

Deputy police chief Gary McGuigan said the woman was allegedly making threats, and had a knife and bear spray in her possession.

The bear spray wasn't discharged and no one was hurt, but the woman was arrested.

She has been charged with possession of a weapon dangerous to the public and uttering threats. 

The woman was released with conditions and is scheduled to appear in court on January 21.

McGuigan said police are noticing more incidents involving bear spray.

"It's out there. People are using it when they are threatening people or when they are assaulting people. It is used to disable them," he said.

"Anybody that has ever been pepper sprayed or bear sprayed, you just know it's fairly humbling when you are hit with the bear spray, you are at their mercy."
