Vulnerable Persons Unit Officers Respond to Woman in Distress

Around 12:30pm Thursday, October 3rd a member of the public reported that a dark complexioned woman appeared to be wearing only a white T-shirt and seemed to be in distress outside the Washington Mall on Reid Street near the junction with Queen Street in the City of Hamilton.

However, the woman - who is believed to be 45 years old – was eventually located about 45 minutes later on Bermudiana Road near the junction with Front Street.

Police officers from the Vulnerable Persons Unit (VPU) attended Bermudiana Road and transported the woman to King Edward VII Memorial Hospital as a place of safety, but she ran off – now apparently fully clothed – toward the north round-a-bout.

Two female VPU officers caught up with the woman at the north round-a-bout and took her into custody for her own safety – which was captured on cell phone video and circulated on social media.

The woman was then transported back to hospital for assessment and appropriate care.
