Robbery with Violence Arrests:
Two Peterborough men are facing numerous charges including robbery and assault after police responded to various incidents in the Barnardo Park area on Thursday night.

Between 8:15 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. police received several calls regarding two men in the area of Barnardo Park at Shelbourne and McLennan Streets.

At approximately 8:10 p.m. the victims, two teenage males, were walking along the trail in the park when they were approached by two unknown men who asked them for money.

During the incident one of the victims had water thrown on his face while the other victim was struck in the face and had his backpack stolen. The victims were able to leave the area.

Shortly after, another victim, a woman in her late 40s, was walking her dog through Barnardo Park when she witnessed the same two males littering. When she attempted to confront the men she was assaulted and the males threatened her dog.
