Police Identify Suspect in Recent Assault and Robbery

Updated: March 14, 2019 06:09 PM

It looks like any other neighborhood. Snow covered curbs, cars lining the streets. But the calm on Atlantic Avenue was shattered in one home on Wednesday morning.


Police responded around 5:15am to the report of a robbery. Two victims were taken to the hospital with injuries that were not life-threatening.

A friend at the scene on Thursday morning said that the family is going to be OK.

Thursday afternoon, Duluth police said they have identified a suspect, and are seeking an arrest warrant.

Longtime residents near the address of the crime in Lincoln Park said they are not afraid now, because they still know their neighbors.

Buzz, who's lived near the address for 20 years, said, "As far as it goes, most of us get along really well. For something like this to happen, it's wow, it hits home. They are good people, good people there."

Other neighbors who declined to go on camera said they same thing. One woman said, "It's a really quiet neighborhood. Everybody knows everybody."
