LAKE HALLIE, Wis. (WEAU) -- Officers say they've arrested an armed robber from a home invasion this summer.
Monday, the Lake Hallie Police Department arrested Cory J. Benavides, 24, from Eau Claire for armed robbery. He's being held in the Chippewa County jail.
Investigators say on July 23, a woman at a home in Lake Hallie says she was asleep on the couch when she woke up to a man with a gun pointed at her.
Officers say her purse and other things were taken but no one was hurt.
Officers say just two miles away from the robbery, someone crashed a van.
They found her purse inside and used blood evidence from an airbag to track down the suspect.
