FLORENCE, AL (WAFF) -

Florence police arrested three people following an attack on South Eclipse Street early Friday morning.

Police arrested Raven Devon Wallace, 19, Thomas Edward Wallace, III, 22, and Derrick Lawson Keenum, 23, all of Florence. Authorities said the three are accused of robbing a man of his wallet while assaulting him.

Officers responded to the robbery around 2 a.m. The victim told police he was walking to a woman's house in response to an internet message to meet her at the East Florence home when he was jumped by two men, one with a large flashlight and brass knuckles and the other with a pistol. Police said the victim was hit with the flashlight, and the men took his wallet.

Police said investigators believe the woman lured the victim to the home where he was robbed. The victim was treated for his injuries at a local hospital and released.

The three suspects were arrested Friday and booked early Saturday morning into Lauderdale County Detention Center on a $50,000 bond each.
