Woman, 74, in critical condition after armed assault

A 74-year-old woman is in critical condition after what police are calling "an armed robbery gone wrong."

Police got a call Tuesday around 12 p.m. about an attack in Côte Saint-Luc. Officers found a woman lying on the  ground in the parking lot of a building, situated on Cavendish Boulevard, near Chemin Louis-Pasteur.

Montreal police spokesman Manuel Couture said the woman suffered major wounds to her upper body.

"It seems like the wounds may have been caused by a blunt object," he said.

Investigators remained on the scene into the evening to look for clues.

No arrests have been made
