Knightscope, for its part, was quick to minimize the incident without going into much detail.
"This is an isolated event," explained Stacy Dean Stephens, VP President of Marketing and Sales, via email. "The incident is under investigation. No people were harmed or involved in any way. A new robot will be delivered this week at no cost to the Harbour per our service agreement."
