Two arrests have been made after a moped phone snatch in Edgware that left a young woman fighting for her life.

The 24-year-old was targeted in Holyrood Gardens by two teenagers on a moped at about 9.10pm on Monday. The pillion passenger punched her and stole her mobile phone and bag.

She suffered a head injury and is still in critical condition in hospital.

Officers yesterday arrested two males aged 17 and 18 years on suspicion of robbery. They have been taken to a north London police station where they are still being held.

Anyone with information should contact police on 101 quoting CAD 7898/04 June. You can also contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
