MADISON (WKOW) -- A passing motorist was flagged down by a 53-year-old woman very early Tuesday morning.
The woman, clearly terrified, stated she was mugged while walking along Northport Drive by a group of young people.
She mentioned the robbers demanded money and the woman said a girl held a knife to her throat and a male suspect pointed a gun at her. She gave them her purse and was then punched in the head.
The victim fell to the ground, trying to protect herself. However, while down, she was repeatedly kicked and punched. She fled into the street when she saw a car approaching and that's when the suspects fled.
Officers canvassed the area and were able to locate three suspects near a gas station. All were arrested for being party to an armed robbery.
The suspects were in possession of electronics and other items, which are believed to have been stolen from parked cars.
The victim's purse was also found, with contents scattered and recovered. More arrests are likely to come.
The three suspects arrested are 18-year-old Lee Scott III of Madison, a 13-year-old Madison girl and a 16-year-old Sun Prairie boy.
