Dover Woman Robbed at Gunpoint in Her Apartment
Dover, MN (KROC-AM News) - The Olmsted County Sheriff's Office is requesting help from the public in identifying three robbery suspects.
Captain Scott Behrns says deputies responded to a report of an armed robbery in Dover around 9:15 last night. He says a 44-year-old woman called 911 shortly after she was held up at gunpoint inside her apartment in the 100 block of Center Street West in Dover.
The victim indicated she went to answer a knock on her door when two white women and a Black male barged into the residence and the man pointed a gun at her head. She says the robbers then forced her to sit on her couch while they gathered up various electronic devices and miscellaneous items that she valued at about $600.
The entire incident was over in a matter of minutes and the robbers left the apartment. The victim believes they fled in a vehicle. All three robbers appeared to be in their 30s. One of the women was described as about 5 foot 5 and 130 pounds with an orange shirt and pulled back orange or auburn colored hair. The other woman was about 5 foot 7 and 120 pounds with darker hair, while the description of the Black male was even more vague, with the victim only indicating he had Afro-style hair.
