Mankato Attempted Robbery Arrests 21 Nov 13

Two residents of Le Center have been arrested for their alleged connection to an attempted robbery outside the Mankato Kohl’s store Tuesday night. 20-year-old Jesus Arroyo III and 29-year-old Josefina Arreola are being held in the Blue Earth County Jail with charges pending after being arrested Wednesday. A woman had reported being assaulted by two people with a knife Tuesday night in the parking lot of the Kohl’s. The two were apparently trying to take the woman’s purse, but the crime was thwarted by a Kohl’s employee who came to the woman’s assistance.
