HALIFAX - Nova Scotia's Serious Incident Response Team is investigating after a 22-year-old woman was injured while being arrested by Halifax police.

The provincial police watchdog says officers responded to a call about a woman who may have been a threat to herself.

They found the woman above the Armview Restaurant on Chebucto Road around 3:25 p.m. Thursday.

Investigators say while officers were attempting to take her into custody under the Involuntary Psychiatric Treatment Act, the woman sustained a broken arm.

The woman was taken to hospital for treatment.

The Serious Incident Response Team is responsible for investigating all serious incidents involving police in Nova Scotia, whether or not there is an allegation of wrongdoing.
