Const. Andrew Frost of Truro police says a 22-year-old woman was burned by hot cheese and sauce from a pizza that had just been taken from an oven at a pizzeria.
Frost says the incident happened as the younger woman was in a line at the restaurant just after 2:15 a.m.
Police responded after receiving a call and Frost says they later located the alleged victim at a nearby bar.
He says the 29-year-old woman appeared at the police station Monday and was charged.
She was released on a promise to appear in Truro provincial court on May 13.
