Four males accused in the mugging of a pair of patrons at a Red Deer McDonald’s restaurant turned themselves into police on Monday night.

Red Deer City RCMP said they turned themselves in as a result of media stories on the robbery.

On May 26 at about 4:20 a.m., a man and a woman, both age 21, entered the East Hill store, located in the mall at 22nd Street and 30th Avenue, when four young men lined up behind them.

Security video from inside the store shows the man and woman talking with the men shortly before leaving the store.

Police allege the two victims were jumped after leaving the store and that the man was robbed of his wallet, keys and cellphone. He suffered a concussion and one of the woman’s fingers was broken. Both were taken to hospital for treatment.

Two 17-year-old males and a 16-year-old male are all charged with assault causing bodily harm. They are scheduled to appear in Red Deer provincial court on July 12.

One male was released without charges.
