MILLBURN, NJ -  A 22-year-old woman was the victim of a robbery that occurred on Main Street in the vicinity of Willow Street last Wednesday, she reported to Millburn police.

The victim said she was picked up at her place of employment in the township by a friend and that there were two other people that she did not recognize also in the car. The four drove to a local bank and the woman went into the bank and cashed her paycheck.
