VIRGINIA, MN — Police say no one was injured during a robbery at the Virginia Edgewood Vista early Monday morning.
Police were called to the Assisted Living center shortly after 3:30 a.m. for a report of a robbery.
Police learned from employees that two younger men had entered the facility through the unlocked main entrance doors about 20 minutes before the call.
According to police, the men were wearing masks, bandannas, dark clothing and gloves, and one of the men was armed with a shotgun.
The men allegedly took prescription narcotics from the building before leaving.
The incident remains under investigation.
CBS 3 Duluth spoke with an Edgewood Vista resident Tuesday who says he’s still on edge, but feels better knowing an investigation is in the works.
“People were kind of shook up, but this is a good place and very good place to live and it’s a safe place,” Ray Santelli said. “I hope the investigation goes good where they snag somebody on this.”
On Tuesday, Robert Ford Jr., the Executive Vice President and Chief Operations Officer for Edgewood Healthcare, issued the following statement:
Edgewood’s priority is the safety and well-being of our residents and employees. We can confirm a break in occurred during the early hours Monday morning. There was no interruption in resident care.
