A Break in Rochester’s Recent Armed Robberies?
Rochester, MN (KROC AM News) - There may be a break in a recent rash of armed robberies in Rochester.
Officers arrested a man Monday night in connection with last week’s robbery of the Sun Tan City business.
A female employee was robbed at gunpoint and police say three men also drove off with her husband’s car as he waited for her to get off work. The car was found nearby, as was another vehicle that matched the description of the one seen near a motel robbery Dec 9th. Police say the man who was arrested Monday is associated with that vehicle and he may be charged Wednesday. He has been identified as 21-year-old Dushawn Minor. He was arrested at his home.
Minor was recently sentenced to probation for an earlier motel robbery. He was charged with aggravated robbery in the August holdup of the Staybridge Suites but pleaded guilty to a lesser charge. He was ordered to repay the nearly $300 he made off with in that robbery.
