The Duluth Police Department has announced the arrests of two men in separate robbery and attempted robbery incidents.

Anthony Prout and Alexander Duncan were arrested on Feb. 15 after a man said they attempted to rob him at gunpoint in an alley in the 2800 block of West 2nd Street.  Both have been charged with attempted aggravated robbery and conspiracy to commit aggravated robbery in connection with that incident.

Officers say the handgun used in the Feb. 15 incident matched the description of a handgun used in a Feb. 8 armed robbery.  Police questioned Prout about the Feb. 8 incident and say he admitted to the robbery.  He is expected to face a charge of aggravated robbery in that incident.
