ACT Policing has arrested a 41-year-old Narrabundah woman and 41-year-old Narrabundah man following an alleged assault and disturbance in Manuka last night (Thursday, 12 December).
Around 7.45pm, three people entered the Subway store where they ordered food. The debit card used to pay for the food was declined and the trio then left the store without paying for the food items.
The manager of the Subway store then followed the trio from the store and took two paper bags containing the food items from a female. He was then punched twice by one of the two males.
The trio was seen leaving the area in a white Holden Commodore.
