A Red Deer man faces robbery charges after two women had their purses stolen in Banff.

Maxine Banville, 20, faces two counts of robbery and one count of possession of property obtained by crime after RCMP investigation of the Feb. 22nd incidents.

Cody De Coteau, 23, of Edmonton also faces two counts of robbery charges.

The two men are alleged to have grabbed the first woman and stealing her purse before fleeing around 8:45 p.m.

The second woman was pushed to the ground and her purse stolen shortly after. Banff RCMP believe a third robbery took place, but that victim hasn’t come forward.

The investigation revealed the suspects were driving a Mercedes SUV stolen during a robbery in Calgary earlier that day.

The SUV was tracked to a Red Deer residence and the suspects arrested.

RCMP continue the investigation and are seeking information about the third robbery victim’s identity.

Both suspects are in custody in Calgary. Banville appears in Calgary provincial court Mar. 7 and De Coteau Mar. 18.
