Two armed-robbery suspects arrested

Two Rochester men are behind bars after they allegedly robbed three men at gunpoint Friday night in southeaster Rochester. Police are looking for a third suspect.

The Rochester Police Department got a call about 7:15 p.m. reporting a robbery at a house in the 1900 block of 8 1/2 St. S.E. According to police Sgt. Craig Anderson, the victims heard a knock at the door and let in the three suspects.

"One of the males pulled out a handgun from his waistband and told everybody to get on the ground and robbed them of their personal property," Anderson said.

When one of the victims did not follow orders at first, one of the men fired a bullet into the ceiling. The robbers fled on foot. Police caught two of the suspects — a 27-year-old man believed to have fired the gun and a 25-year-old man.
