Charges laid in downtown swarming and robbery
Ottawa Police have charged two men with assault and robbery after an incident Tuesday night.

They say the man also had a cell phone taken from him during the assault. Police say the robbery does not appear to be random and that one suspect was carrying a metal baton.
28-year-olds James and Sean Cundell are both charged with robbery with an offensive weapon, assault causing bodily harm, conspiracy to commit an indictable offence, and possession of a prohibited weapon.
Police say they are looking for a third suspect, but that no physical description is available.
