Regional Police say a woman accused of robbing a store at Fairview Park Mall Monday night only got as far as the front doors.

It’s alleged a lone woman walked into a store at the Kitchener shopping mall just before 9 p.m., and stole an undisclosed amount of cash.

But police say the call came in as the robbery was in progress, and officers arrived just in time to catch the suspect leaving the mall in an attempt to flee the scene.

The stolen cash was recovered and returned to the store, and a 39-year-old Cambridge woman was arrested.

Charges include committing a robbery with violence, uttering threats and weapons dangerous.
