An apparent rental dispute involving tenants turned into a huge fight with an assortment of weapons, according to RCMP on Vancouver Island.

On Friday night, a new tenant showed up at a home in Sooke and tried to convince the current occupants to vacate in a "brewing landlord/tenant dispute," said a police news release.

As a result, 10 people ended up in a fight with weapons that included:

  • Bear spray
  • Axes
  • A steel pipe
  • A baseball bat
  • Knives
  • Brass knuckles
  • Handcuffs
  • A hammer.

Four people were injured and taken to hospital, while two vehicles at the scene had the windows smashed in during the brawl.

The seven men and three women involved are all from Sooke, said RCMP.

Charges are expected against nine suspects.
