The suspect was apparently seen randomly kicking and punching people as she walked near Main Street and National Avenue.
According to a release from VPD, after arresting the woman, the officers were approached by a 26-year-old man who said he’d also been assaulted by the woman. Two other victims were identified but told police they didn’t want to participate in a court process.
An assault charge has now been laid against 38-year-old Samantha Towedo.
Towedo has also been charged with assault in connection with an incident that occurred February 1 near Marine Gateway, in Marpole.
In that incident, a woman in her 20s was allegedly punched in the face when she refused to give a cigarette to a stranger.
