PHOENIX (AP) - Authorities say a woman and her daughter are accused of stealing cellphones from people at several gym facilities around Phoenix.

Phoenix police say 43-year-old Bonnie Herbert and 24-year-old Eboney Herbert each have been booked into jail on suspicion of assault, theft, shoplifting and endangerment.

Police say the suspects used a small child to distract patrons while the thefts were taking place.

The two were arrested Tuesday at a Phoenix hotel.

Neither woman had a lawyer at their initial court appearance Wednesday.

Bonnie Herbert was ordered held without bond while Eboney Herbert was released on her own recognizance pending a Dec. 30 preliminary hearing.
