Andy Dumay told officers that a black-skinned male wearing a black hoodie and blue jeans approached him in front of his residence demanding his iPhone and password. The offender then pulled out a gun.

The 20-year-old turned over the phone and the armed robber told him to walk down Park Street and not to look back.

The suspect then fled on Park towards Communipaw Avenue.

According to Dumay, he would be able to identify the man.

The victim was transported to the South district, where he met with detectives.

The suspect has been charged with robbery, possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose/firearms and unlawful possession of weapons.
