Two teenaged males and a woman have been arrested in connection with a violent armed robbery and confinement of an elderly man in Campbellton over the weekend.
A 71-year-old man was the victim of the alleged incident on Saturday evening, RCMP Cpl. Pierre Laviolette stated in a news release.
The man was giving a drive to the accused 40-year-old woman and teens when an altercation allegedly occurred inside the vehicle, said Laviolette.
The victim was not physically injured and was able to get away to call police, he said.
The woman, who was known to the victim, was charged in Campbellton provincial court on Monday with armed robbery, forcible confinement, uttering threats and breach of an undertaking.
She remains remanded in custody until a bail hearing, scheduled for Jan. 11.
The two teens, aged 17 and 18, have been released under conditions and will face charges at a later date, he said.
All three of the accused were arrested shortly after the alleged altercation without incident.
The investigation continues and more charges could be pending, said Laviolette.
