One woman was arrested after an armed robbery that occurred at , 5699 Mowry Ave., on Tuesday afternoon, police said.
The 33-year-old woman was apprehended after police closed a street off of Smith Avenue after finding a vehicle connected to the attempted robbery in front of a home on the 6300 block of Escallonia Drive, said Commander Tom Milner of the Newark Police Department.
Two other individuals remain at large and Newark police are continuing their investigation to learn more details about the identities of those involved and details from Tuesday's incident, said Commander Bob Douglas of the Newark Police Department Wednesday.
According to witnesses, a group of people attempted to rob a man just before 4 p.m. in the parking lot of the restaurant, Milner said. Words were exchanged and the group left in a car, he said.
Police connected the vehicle to a home on Escallonia Drive and believing that a suspect or suspects were still in the home with a handgun, the SWAT team of the Newark and Union City police departments was called in, according to Milner.
There were no injuries reported.
The woman has since been cited for suspicion of posession of drug paraphernalia. She has been released. Her connection with Tuesday's incident is still under investigation, Douglas said.
Any person with information concerning this incident should contact Detective Sergeant Michael Carroll at (510) 578-4247. Information can also be left anonymously on the “silent witness” hotline at 510-578-4000, extension 500.
