Two people have been charged in connection with a fight involving a sword in the city’s east end.

Brockville police responded to reports of a large fight on Broadway Avenue at about 9:30 p.m. Tuesday night. Police say they arrived on scene in time to "witness the combatants," where they then arrested a 23-year-old male for weapons offences as he was waving a sword. 

A 19-year-old female was also arrested at the scene by officers for assault on another female. 

Police said the fight was the end result of a dispute between several parties, with alcohol being a factor.

Both accused have been released from custody with a future court date.
