‘Ottawa’ Ottawa Police Seek Help Finding Two Suspects in South End Mugging
Ottawa police are seeking assistance in identifying two suspects in a mugging earlier this week in the Hunt Club area.
The robbery occurred at about 10:30 p.m. Tuesday when a woman rang the doorbell at a residence on Horsdal Private and said she needed help with her car.
The victim followed the woman to the car where he was jumped by a man who put the victim in a “choke hold.”
The male victim fought off the attacker, who jumped into the vehicle and took off. The pair was last seen on Blohm Drive.
A gold chain was stolen in the robbery. There were no injuries.
The female suspect is described as Caucasian, English-speaking about 20 years old, with a tanned complexion. She was about five feet four inches tall with a slim build, with dark blond hair to her mid-back. At the time of the attack she was wearing a beige top and light blue jeans.
The male suspect was described only as English-speaking, about six feet one inch to six feet two inches tall with a thin build.
The suspects were in a newer model four-door silver or white Honda Civic.
Police said the motive behind the attack was “unclear.”
But police cautioned the public to be alert and cautious of such late-night calls for assistance.
