A teenager was struck by a car while crossing a street in Maple Ridge Wednesday morning.

The girl was hit around 8 a.m. while walking across Dewdney Trunk at Burnette Street and is the second teenager to be injured along the stretch in the past three weeks.

Cpl. Alanna Dunlop said the girl was struck by a compact car travelling west.

She was taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries and expected to make a full recovery.

The driver of the car has been charged with a Motor Vehicle Act offence.

On Nov. 16, Dayton Laitinen, 16 was hit by a car while crossing Dewdney Trunk Road at 234th Street, in a lit and marked pedestrian crosswalk.

He was thrown about six metres, but not seriously injured.

Ridge Meadows RCMP were contacted by the victims just after 2 a.m. and were told a wallet and cell phone was stolen from them by a man who brandished a weapon.

The robbery took place on Lougheed Highway near 225th Street.

The men who were robbed went to the Ridge Meadows RCMP detachment to report the crime.

The alleged thief was found by police on Lougheed Hwy. near 222nd Street a short while later.

Cpl. Alanna Dunlop said the man, who is known to police, was held for a court appearance later in the day.
