Toronto police have arrested two 16-year-old girls in relation to last week's stabbing at the Scarborough Town Centre.

Police say she chased the two girls to try to get her phone back. 

The woman was stabbed multiple times in the face and and upper body. Her injuries were serious but not life-threatening.
