Two people are facing numerous charges following a series of robberies Thursday night.

At approximately 8 p.m., two suspects (a man and a woman) forced their way into a home in the 300 block of Enfield Crescent. The male suspect, armed with a weapon, threatened a 52-year-old man, before a struggle ensued.

The suspects fled the scene. The 52-year-old was treated for minor injuries.

Later that evening, a second incident occurred in the 500 block of Machray Avenue when a 55-year-old woman was robbed of her personal property. This incident occurred at approximately 8:30 p.m.

Fifteen minutes later, police received a call that two suspects entered a residence in the 600 block of Anderson Avenue and stole personal property, including a credit card belonging to a 63-year-old woman.

The suspects used the stolen credit card in the Polo Park area.

David Joyal, 31, and Tyrenne Thomas, 23, are facing numerous charges. Both have been detained at the Provincial Remand Centre.
