Rochester Man Accused of Threatening Motorists With Gun
Rochester, MN (KROC AM News) - A Rochester man had police officers scrambling to find him Saturday after he was involved in two reported incidents involving gun-related threats.
The first report came in at 12:45 PM when a St Paul man called to report he had just been threatened by a man while driving on 55th St NW near Highway 52. The man told officers a car pulled alongside and the man driving the vehicle pointed a gun at him. The man was apparently upset because the victim was going too slow. The victim had his two young children with him at the time.
The second call came in 15 minutes later from the 1500 block of 11th Ave NE. A man reported he was backing out of his driveway when a man stopped his car and pointed a gun at him.
Officers received information that the suspect was inside a residence in the 700 block of 13th Ave NE and surrounded the home. A robot with a camera was sent inside and located the man who surrendered without incident.
Arrested was 21-year-old Demetrious Tankhamvang.
