A woman was robbed at gunpoint and assaulted by three suspects in Waite Park Sunday, according to police.
According to the Waite Park Police Department, officers were called to a parking lot at the 1400 block of 7th Street South on Sunday at around 11:30 p.m. A female victim told officers she was exiting her vehicle and when she was confronted by three men.
