MONROE — A robbery suspect believed to have taken someone’s wallet at gunpoint was arrested by the Monroe Police Department.
The suspect, whose name was not released Wednesday in a news release issued by the police department, was taken to the Monroe County jail on charges of armed robbery.
The victim’s wallet and a black “airsoft” type gun was in the suspect’s possession during his arrest, according to police.
