Woman robbed, suspect at large
A UW-River Falls female student was robbed of her purse Friday night while she went to her parked car in the 1000 block of East Cascade Avenue. Her assailant held her from behind, threatening her with some kind of sharp object. This is the third armed robbery in just over a month in River Falls.
After the woman gave up her purse, the man threw her against the car. She banged her head and fell. He fled to the northeast behind the veterinary clinic.
