The Clark County Sheriff's Office arrested three Woodland residents Friday in connection with an armed robbery of a Salmon Creek restaurant Thursday night.

Deputies arrested 23-year-old Nicholas Mayer, his 20-year-old sister Emily Mayer and 22-year-old John Taylor for first degree robbery.

The robbery occurred about 9 p.m. at KC Teriyaki, 800 N.E. Tenney Road.

Employees described two suspects with guns. Both were described as white males, about 20 years old, with a medium build, wearing dark clothing and ski masks. One of the robbers pointed a gun at an employee, and the suspects took a bank deposit bag and escaped into a neighborhood south of the restaurant, police said.

All three suspects were booked into the Clark County Jail. The office said there will be no more information released this weekend.
