The woman, whose name and nationality was not revealed, was arrested by the authorities under the Mental Health (Care and Treatment) Act.

Under this act, those who are reported to be mentally ill and believed to be dangerous to themselves or to other people must be taken by a police officer to a doctor for examination or to a psychiatric facility.
