Approximately five minutes later, a 16-year-old boy riding his bike in the area of Pembina Highway and Dalhousie Street was knocked to the ground and assaulted. The suspects fled with his bicycle and personal property. The victim was treated for minor injuries in hospital.

At around 11:15 p.m., a 16-year-old girl was knocked to the ground and assaulted. She had her phone stolen and suffered non-life threatening injuries.

As police were responding to the area at around 11:45 p.m., a woman in her 40s was confronted by the suspects at a store in the 2100 block of Pembina Highway. They demanded her cell phone, but were thwarted when officers arrived.
