AUSTIN, MN – Two young men are in custody in Mower County.

It has to do with an apparent robbery that happened last night.

Austin Police were called to the 900 block of Second Avenue Southwest at about 5:30 on Tuesday.

The victim claims the suspects stole 50 dollars from him, while pointing a gun at his head.

“The victim is articulating to us that a fire arm was brandished at the time,” Captain Dave McKichan of the Austin Police Department said. “We’ve talked to a couple of the witnesses and again, although we believe an altercation certainly took place, some of the other things are being investigated.”

He says suspects will be facing charges in yesterday’s incident.
