A woman in her early 20s has been arrested in connection with an alleged assault in Co Sligo yesterday evening.

Gardaí say that the woman entered a premises in Sligo town without wearing a face mask.

When challenged about this, she left the premises, but returned later with what gardaí described as an implement and allegedly assaulted a member of staff.

The injured staff member was taken to Sligo University Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

The woman fled the scene after the incident, but later presented herself at Sligo Garda Station and was arrested and charged.

She is currently being detained at Ballymote Garda Station and will appear before Sligo District Court on Thursday.
