The RCMP arrested a woman after she tried to rob a passenger and threatened to stab a BC Ferries staff member at the Swartz Bay ferry terminal in North Saanich on Saturday.

Police say the victim refused to give the woman their phone and BC Ferries workers intervened, resulting in the woman threatening to stab the staff before she fled the terminal.

While officers were responding, they say they received another call that the woman was attempting to break into a nearby residence, and they soon found and arrested her.

RCMP say the woman, who is from Victoria, now faces multiple charges including robbery, mischief, assault with a weapon, and breaking and entering.
