Bystanders apprehend assault suspect

A 28 year old Belleville woman has been charged with assault and robbery after a random attack in downtown Kingston.

Police were called to Brock and Wellington Streets just before 10 p.m. Tuesday after a report of a woman attacking another woman and stealing her cellphone.

Shortly after that attack the suspect went after another woman and several bystanders intervened and held her until police arrived.

The suspect was taken to hospital for treatment of minor injuries, then taken to police headquarters where she was held for a bail hearing today.
