An Eden Prairie man is facing charges in connection to a Dec. 21 robbery at Chanhassen apartment.

The Carver County Sheriff's Office says deputies responded to the reported robbery just after 11:30 p.m. at 410 Chan View. Investigators learned a masked man armed with a knife had knocked on an apartment door and then threatened to kill the lone resident if he wasn't given items from inside the apartment.

The victim was not injured and was able to provide detailed information to authorities.

The sheriff's office says Alex Craig Rylander was arrested in connection to the robbery. He has been charged with aggravated robbery, first-degree burglary and second-degree assault.

Rylander is being held in the Carver County Jail on $10,000 cash bond.
