Bay City News Service

Newark police have arrested two suspects in connection with an August strong-arm robbery at Newpark Mall, officials said.

The robbery occurred on Aug. 24 as the victim, a 53-year-old woman, was walking through the parking lot.

A suspect grabbed the victim's purse, knocking her to the ground, and then jumped into a waiting vehicle and fled the area.

Mall security was able to get a license plate number from the vehicle and from that information police said they were able to identify suspects.

The arrests were made earlier this month, but police have just released details of the arrests.

Police arrested Luis Arevalo, a 27-year-old Newark resident, and Sergio Sanchez, an 18-year-old Newark resident. Sanchez, who is accused of being the suspect who grabbed the victim's purse, was the last to be arrested, police said.
