Sheriff investigates robbery

The Seneca County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the report of a robbery early Tuesday morning at Pelton’s Mobile Home Park.

According to sheriff’s office reports, a caller at 12400 W. Axline St. reported at 2:51 a.m. two men wearing masks entered a trailer and robbed the residents.

Lt. Brian Hescht of the Seneca County Sheriff’s Office said the resident told deputies that one man had a baseball bat and the other had what looked like a handgun. The men did not demand anything in particular, but grabbed a purse that was on the floor.

The men then fled in a blue, four-door vehicle, a resident reported.

Hescht said the purse contained cash and prescription medication.

He said the residents were not injured, and the incident remains under investigation.
