LAGRANGE - A LaGrange woman is in custody after allegedly holding up the Dollar General store on South Detroit Street at knife point around 7 Thursday evening.
Witnesses said 18-year-old Sarah Jones appeared to be not quite right as she rode a bicycle in front of a vehicle that was pulling into the parking lot.
She went inside the store and went straight to the cash register in front of other waiting customers and demanded cash. One witness said Jones was shaking as if she had a medical condition.
She apparently cut the phone line and left the store on the bicycle heading west on South Street.
A customer called 9-1-1 on a cell phone and at least three police vehicles responded to the area.
At 7:15 p-m LaGrange firefighters and medics were paged out to Jones’ apartment at 215 West South Street on a report of a stab wound.
LaGrange Town Marshal Rich Snuder said Jones was the injured person. No store employees or customers were injured in the robbery.
Jones is charged with armed robbery.
