Nashua woman held in armed robbery

NASHUA - A city woman is under arrest, accused of robbing a local convenience store last March while armed with a knife.

Monique Lopez, 32, of 60 Manchester St., is charged with class A felony robbery in the March 26 robbery of the East Hollis Street Variety, 131 East Hollis St.

Detectives identified her as a suspect in the case, but they were unable to locate her until she was arrested in New York City on unrelated charges. She was brought back to New Hampshire Friday.

The store clerk told police a woman dressed in black with a scarf over a portion of her face entered the store about 8 p.m. on March 26 and, while brandishing a knife, demanded money.

The clerk complied and gave her an undisclosed amount of cash, and the robber fled out the door with the money.

What's next: Lopez is to be arraigned Monday in 9th Circuit Court, Nashua District Division.
