A 32-year-old woman was arrested by the Primrose police, last Friday, in connection with an armed robbery that took place in Malvern East in July.
The incident was first reported to police by two female victims.
“They told officers they were walking along Pandora Road when they were approached by a white Volkswagen Golf with three occupants, two men and a woman,” said Sgt Styles Maome, communications officer for the Primrose police.
“The occupants of the vehicle allegedly asked the women where they could exchange foreign currency in the area.”
