A man has been arrested on suspicion of stalking and harassment in connection with a suspicious package alert in Truro last night.
Two women were left with minor injuries after coming into contact with a white substance described as a "mild irritant". Police, ambulance services and the hazard materials team were all on the scene at the house in Payling Place last night.
The 47-year-old man is from Penryn, and is being held at Camborne Custody Centre.
The police say others are not at risk.

A protest has been held in Truro today against welfare cuts proposed by the new Conservative government.
The peaceful demonstration was organised by The People's Assembly. They're unhappy about the Governments plans of cuts to local and public services.
"We just want to give people a voice that feel alienated by the whole political process. We want to hear people's stories, and experiences and worries of the next 5 years."
"The Government have been pushing people to go into higher education, I've done exactly everything that they've told us to do and I'm still looking at the prospect of unemployment."
A great-grandfather from Truro has hit the lottery jackpot, winning £13.5 million in last week's Lotto Rollover.
Three different people told Peter Congdon, 67, it was his lucky day after he won a few pounds on scratchcards three days in a row. When he got lucky on the Rollover his first thought was that he had won £25, before double checking with his daughter that it was the magic six.
“When she agreed with me, I came home and put my ticket in a book in the kitchen and made myself a cup of tea. Needless to say, I didn’t get much sleep that night.”
Mr Congdon, a widower, is a father-of-three, grandfather-of-ten and great-grandfather-of-one in a close-knit family who all live nearby. He says he'll be treating himself and his children to new cars, but this year's family holiday won't be changing - they'll be going to Butlin's, as they have for 40 years.
Mr Congdon is the latest winner from the region, joining recent winners Jenn Burston from Exeter who won £3 million at Christmas, and a syndicate group from Plymouth who won last summer.

Hundreds of people dressed as druids, wizards and fairies have turned out for the funeral of a wizard in Cornwall.
63-year-old Ian Wilson was better known as Eron the Wizard. The former builder from Gloucester died from cancer two weeks ago.
He embraced the Wicca religion on moving to Cornwall, and spent his time acting as a 'gate keeper', encouraging others to believe and also offering spiritual support to other cancer sufferers.
His daughter Rebecca Spencer organised a traditional Wicca ceremony for his funeral, which is a modern form of Paganism.
I'm not into the Pagan and Wiccan things, he was just a normal Dad to me, you know funny, kind and I could tell him everything, he was like my best friend.
What I've done today is for him, it's not for me, it's what he would have wanted. When he was alive he loved being the centre of attention, so now he's the centre of attention in death. He would be proud I think.
The ceremony was presided over by family friend and High Priestess Julia Stoiber who flew in from Austria to perform the ritual which involved casting a circle and blessing it with the elements.
Hundreds of people dressed as witches, fairies and druids are expected in Cornwall this morning, at what's believed to be the first pagan funeral in the country for centuries.
Ian Wilson, also known as Eron the Wizard, was a so-called "White Wizard" from Tintagel. He died of cancer two weeks ago, and his family have said they wish to honour his Wiccan beliefs.
The ceremony is thought to be being conducted by a high priestess, with torchbearers, pagan blessings and other Wiccan ritual elements.
