A woman was allegedly beaten and robbed by a group of young adults in an Olathe Wal-Mart parking lot Friday evening. The suspects were arrested shortly after the attack.

Olathe Police were called to the Wal-Mart at 13600 S. Alden St. around 6:45 p.m., according to Lt. Scott Russell.

A 42-year-old woman told them she had been physically assaulted by three people who also stole her purse. Her minor injuries were treated at the scene.
