TWO women face robbery charges after a mugging Saturday in the north Main neighbourhood.
Investigators say a 26-year-old woman had just purchased a quantity of liquor on Saturday afternoon and was standing outside a business in the 1000 block of Main Street when confronted by two women.
One of them distracted the woman by asking for a cigarette. The second woman physically assaulted the victim, and then both tried to rob her.
A passerby came to the victim's aid and the suspects fled on foot. Officers who were called to the scene were told the two suspects were still in the area.
A short time later, two suspects, an 18-year-old woman and a 28-year-old woman, were located and arrested on Main Street near Selkirk Avenue. They remained in custody on Sunday.
