Lethbridge Police have charged a 26-year-old woman and 25-year-old man in connection with robbery and assault Tuesday at a local grocery store.
On July 17, 2018 at approximately 11:15 a.m. a female entered London Road Market and took several food items including a glass bottle of pop. She then left the store without paying. A staff member confronted the woman, who met up with a male, and asked her to return the stolen items. The male proceeded to punch the employee and a physical altercation – that was recorded by a passerby and has been posted to social media – subsequently ensued. As the employee struggled with the male on the ground, the female smashed the glass bottle and used the broken end as a weapon. At that point the employee and a citizen who had stopped to help, backed off and the subjects fled the area. The subjects were apprehended by police a short time later. The employee sustained a non-life-threatening injury to his face.
Constance Red Crow, 26, of Lethbridge, and Dennis Noskey, 25, of Lethbridge, are both charged with robbery, two counts of assault with a weapon and possession of a weapon dangerous to the public. They were remanded to appear in court today.
