One arrested in armed robbery

ROCHESTER, Minn. – Rochester authorities are investigating a possible armed robbery on the 2200 block of Park Lane.

One person is in custody and authorities are still searching for two other suspects.

Police say the suspects were armed when they broke into the home and forced everyone inside into a separate room at gun point.
By the time authorities arrived two of the suspects were able to escape. “That individual then fled on foot, was pursued by an officer that was in area but the suspect had a pretty good head seat.” Rochester Police Department Captain John Sherwin said.

However, police arrested Tirone Ruth. Charges against Ruth are still pending. Nobody inside the home was injured.
