Lakewood police today arrested a woman suspected of robbing a man in Tacoma with two other people.

The incident started just after noon when a man called Tacoma police to report that he’d been hit and robbed in the 4000 block of Portland Avenue.

Witnesses wrote down the robbers’ license plate and police discovered it was registered to a Lakewood home in the 2600 block of 84th St. Ct. S.

“It was plain old-fashioned police work,” Lakewood police Lt. Chris Lawler said.

Officers waited outside the home to see if the robbers would come home. When they did, police tried to speak with them but they took off running.

One woman was taken into custody. A K-9 dog was brought in to track the man and woman who fled.

Oakwood Elementary School was temporarily placed on lockdown while police searched for the suspects. They were not located.

    It’s just another day…de de de de de da….it’s just another day!!!! Seriously, my friend had a second grader at Oakland Elementary pull a knife on her. She is not a teacher anymore and neither am I.

    Sorry about the knife at Oakland Elementary School, but that has nothing to do with this story. Oakwood Elementary School was placed on lockdown as a precaution. None of the students had anything to do with the robbery.
