Woman Arrested Following Mugging On Sundale Bridge

A woman has been mugged while walking over the Sundale Bridge in Southport overnight.

The 23-year-old victim was allegedly punched in the face and kicked in the stomach by another woman around 9:20pm, before the offender took off with her phone and sunglasses.

A 38-year-old woman was arrested nearby a short time later and has since been charged with various robbery and assault offences.

She was due to face the Southport Magistrates Court on Tuesday. 

Meantime, police are on the hunt for a man who held up a phone shop in Southport a few hours earlier.

The man apparently waited for other people to leave the store on Scarborough St, before pulling out a gun and demanding cash from staff around 5:30 on Monday evening.

They handed the money over and the man fled without hurting anyone.
