Four people are facing robbery charges following an incident in Polson Park Saturday.

An 18-year-old man called police at around 7 p.m. to say he had been robbed by four people near the skateboard park.

“The victim had two chains ripped off his neck, some loose change was stolen as were some other items,” said RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk.

A 26-year-old man and three girls aged 15 to 17 were arrested a short time later.

Molendyk said the Vernon suspects had been drinking prior to the offence.

The man was released from custody, and the girls turned over to their parents. All will appear in court at a later date.

Police recovered the stolen chains nearby.
