April 04, 2018 - 1:14 PM

NEW WESTMINSTER, B.C. - Two people have been arrested for allegedly assaulting a 61-year-old woman in a dispute over seats on a bus in Surrey, B.C.

Metro Vancouver Transit Police say the woman suffered a cracked rib and a broken arm on March 20 when she was pushed to the floor, struck in the head and chest, and had her cellphone stolen.

Police put out a call for witnesses and say they received more than 100 tips.

The force says a 34-year-old man and a 28-year-old woman, both from Surrey, turned themselves into police.

Dylan Miranda was initially released on a promise to appear, but is now facing charges of assault, theft and mischief, and a warrant has been issued for his arrest.

Christina Ponce has been charged with robbery, assault causing bodily harm, uttering threats and theft, and she remains in custody.
