From The CBC:

A woman is fighting for her life in hospital after she was violently mugged at a Montreal North bus stop Sunday night.

Montreal police have arrested two teenage suspects in connection with the attack and are still searching for a third boy.

The 67-year-old woman is in critical condition after being assaulted and robbed at the corner of Henri Bourassa Blvd. and St. Vital Street in Montreal North by three people, said Const. Raphael Bergeron. She sustained serious head injuries.

Police interviewed the two 15-year-old suspects Monday, and are still tracking the third attacker.
