Arrest made in robbery at Twin Falls park

TWIN FALLS - Twin Falls police say thanks to help from the community they have identified to suspects in a robbery at a city park.

Police asked for assistance in identifying a person of interest in a strong armed robbery of an elderly female on Saturday. Police released a photo of a man wanted for questioning earlier this week. 

The woman was at a trick-or-treat event in the park when two male suspects ran up and grabbed her purse. Several citizens took after the men and were able to recover the woman's purse.

Detectives got several good leads from the public and identified two juveniles involved in the robbery. One of them has been taken into custody. Since this case involves juveniles, their names will not be released.

The case has been turned over to the Twin Falls County Prosecutor’s Office. Charges will be filed against the two juvenile suspects.
