I have to ask because Googling isn’t helpful and because the blurb that goes with the headline just sounds like any other robbery to me. The girls that got arrested for it weren’t even charged with some exotic flavour of robbery. It just says robbery. I’m guessing this is either another example of that annoying cop talk (think ” fled at a high rate of speed”) or the poor web content writer trying to make his assignment seem a little more important. My money’s on cop talk, especially since CTV just parroted this police news release, which also doesn’t answer the question.
Regional police were called to the Sunview Street and University Avenue West scene around 11:10 p.m. Monday.
They say a victim was approached by two suspects who brandished knives, demanded personal property, and then fled on foot.
