Peel police arrested a female passenger on a flight from Cuba to Toronto Monday morning after a man was assaulted.

Police arrested a female passenger at Toronto's Pearson Airport on Monday after she allegedly assaulted a male passenger on a flight from Cuba.

Peel Regional Police reported the "disturbance" in a tweet about an "inbound" flight from Cuba to Toronto.

Const. Lori Murphy said police arrested the passenger after the plane landed at the airport. Police received a call at 10:14 a.m. about the incident.

The victim, 26, suffered minor injuries and was not taken to hospital.

"I don't know if they knew each other or not," Murphy said.

Murphy did not identify the airline and did not know from which Cuban city the flight had departed.

"I don't know if it caused a delay. The arrest happened without incident," she said.

The suspect's age and nationality were not released.

Murphy said the Airport Division of Peel Regional Police has taken over the investigation.
