Two Eritrean migrants were arrested overnight on suspicion of robbing a 25-year-old woman in Tel Aviv, police said Tuesday.
The incident occurred on Maze Street, when the suspects pounced on the woman, a local Tel Aviv resident, at around 2:30 a.m., snatched her bag containing cash and property, and struck her, causing bruising.
The woman called police, who arrived quickly on the scene and found one suspect trying to enter a cab on Begin Street. A second suspect was arrested nearby.
Police said the suspects were in possession of the stolen goods.
The suspects are due to appear before the Tel Aviv magistrate's for a remand hearing.
