Just before 9:00 one evening last week, a man on a scooter was approached by a man and woman in the 2000 block of E. Hastings Street. The couple allegedly began assaulting the victim by repeatedly kicking his face and body, and choking him. When they fled moments later, they took his scooter with them.

Witnesses called police, who found the male suspect nearby. He was charged with robbery and breach of undertaking.

The victim was taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. The scooter was found abandoned nearby and returned to the victim.

The female suspect has not yet been located.
