Attempted armed robbery reported in Rochester


ROCHESTER, Minn. – Two people reported on Wednesday that a man with a gun attempted to rob them in the 3400 block of 22nd Ave. NW.

It happened around 2:30 a.m. when a 20-year-old woman and 19-year-old man were walking back to an apartment. They told police they were approached by a black man wearing a black ski mask who held a gun and demanded money.

At some point, the 19-year-old man reportedly wrestled with the suspect before a neighbor heard the commotion and grabbed a baseball bat. He could see the two wrestling and pounded on his door before the suspect ran off.

There were no injuries and no arrests have been made.
