A woman was shot in the face multiple times with pellet guns during a robbery in Regina.

Shortly before 9 p.m. CST on Tuesday, police arrived around the 2200 block of Broad Street after receiving a report of a robbery taking place nearby. 

Police were told that two young men came up to a 25-year-old woman and pointed two pellet guns at her head and demanded that she give them her belongings. The woman hesitated and was then shot in the face two to three times, according to police.

The two suspects then fled and the woman ran to a nearby business.
