A woman was robbed early Monday morning in west Vancouver when four people knocked her down and stole her phone.

The 42-year-old was walking in the area of East 29th Street and Grand Boulevard in the Rose Village neighborhood when she was jumped by a woman and three men, Vancouver police spokeswoman Kim Kapp said. Suspect Sara Berry, 29, was later located and arrested on suspicion of second-degree robbery and possession of methamphetamine. Berry knew the victim, Kapp said.

Police did not locate the three men suspected in the crime. They all were described as 20 to 30 years old and below average height. The robbery victim was treated at the scene for scrapes.
