Two men robbed six rural dairies in Merced County early Thursday, assaulting several employees, but making off with very little in the way of money and property, the Sheriff’s Office reported.
All six robberies were reported between 2 and 3 a.m. Thursday, deputies said in a news release.
“The suspects entered the milking barns at the dairies and demanded that workers hand over their personal property,” deputies said. “There were threats by the suspects that they were armed. The suspects also physically assaulted several of the dairy workers.”
