Police are on the lookout for a pair of purse-snatching women.
According to police, on Saturday at around 8:30 p.m., two separate complaints came in of two women trying to take off with purses near the Sportsplex.
During the first instance, they were successful. In the second snatching attempt, the victim got away with her purse, but not before she was punched in the face.
Suspects in both cases are described as a heavy set and a thin female youth, both aboriginal in appearance.
There have been no arrests and the matter remains under investigation.
