Mint Hill police officers caught three strong armed robbery suspects today after they responded to a robbery call near the Bojangle’s on Lawyers Road. Officers were involved in a short car chase followed by a foot pursuit to apprehend the three suspects.
The witness called police at approximately 10:30 am and told police a black male got out of a black Volkswagen Jetta and grabbed a woman’s purse, dragging her across the parking lot.
Some of the victim’s stolen items, including credit cards and a pocket PC, were recovered in the suspects’ vehicle. The victim suffered minor injuries, but is expected to be OK.
