MONROE Three Monroe-area people were arrested yesterday in the robbery of a female party store employee after she left work earlier in the morning.
Deputies did not identify the two men and a woman arrested.
Authorities said the employee left the State Park Store on North Dixie Highway in Frenchtown Township at 12:20 a.m. and got into her car when a man approached and broke out the driver-side window. The woman was pulled from the car and assaulted with a sharp object.
The man grabbed her purse and ran away and was tracked with the aid of a police dog. Two other people were arrested at a motel with the suspected assailant and were being held on unrelated warrants.
