Snow shovelling isn’t something that most people enjoy.

When two residents of a Guelph apartment building were shovelling snow from around their vehicles, things got out of hand.

It happened on Tuesday at an apartment complex on Waterloo Avenue.

The Guelph Police Service says that one of the residents, a 61-year-old female, was upset about the way the other resident, a 71-year-old female, was placing the snow.

Police say the first resident allegedly threw snow at the other with a shovel. A physical altercation ensued.

The 71 year old received a cut on her cheek and bruising on her wrists. Police say she did not need medical attention.

The other woman will appear in court on March 12 facing an assault charge.
