COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -  A break in a robbery case in Columbus- two local men and a woman now face charges.

24-year-old Roberto Duff, 23-year-old Hakem Walton, and 19-year-old Dominique Williams have been arrested and charged after investigators say they took part in robbing an employee at a Medical Clinic near Saint Francis Hospital in January.

According to police, one of the men approached the woman as she was leaving work, sprayed her in the face with pepper spray or mace and ran off with her purse which contained her office's bank drop- an amount of several thousand dollars, mostly cash. The investigation that followed led detectives to charge all three.

Their case has been bound over to Superior Court. A judge has issued bond for all three.
