Const. Crystal Evelyn said the woman was reportedly also referencing a stabbing of some kind.

“No specific room number was provided, resulting in officers having to search two floors to find the source of the scream,” Evelyn said. “No stabbing had occurred.”

A man was arrested for multiple offences, including assault, breach of conditions and forcible confinement. He remains in police custody and is expected to appear in court on Tuesday.
