Deputies in Whitley County arrested two people shortly after a grocery store holdup Tuesday afternoon.
Officials say a man and woman walked into Young's Grocery along KY-904 around 4 p.m. The man was armed with an axe handle and the woman brandished a tire iron. Deputies say the store owner and bystanders got into a fight with the robbers, and the duo ran from the store.
A short time later, deputies arrested Roy W. Lawson, 36, and Rebecca Lawson, 37, and charged them with robbery. Officials say deputies took Roy Lawson to the hospital for treatment of injuries sustained in the fight before taking him on to jail.
