Replica handgun arrest

Victoria police arrested a woman carrying a replica handgun while downtown.

CTV reports a passerby spotted the woman carrying what looked like a black handgun in the 1400-block of Government Street just before 6 p.m. Sunday.

Patrol officers found the woman and saw her placing the replica handgun in her purse. She didn't initially comply with orders to give herself up and put down her purse but police say they were able to use critical incident de-escalation techniques to engage with the woman and after a short period of time, she gave herself up and was arrested without further incident.

A black replica firearm was seized.

Police say the file remains under investigation.
