A Maplewood man is accused of robbing three people at gunpoint in Eagan.
Everett Jacobe-Kwunzell Durr, 21, was charged on Dec. 31 with second-degree aggravated robbery for a Dec. 30 incident.
According to the criminal complaint, Durr and another man approached three people outside an apartment complex on Greystone Drive, and Durr allegedly displayed a black handgun and told the victims to empty their pockets.
The two men allegedly took about $50 and a cellphone from the group and fled.

Durr was arrested and denied knowing about a robbery during a police interview. Durr claimed he was at the complex to pick up the passenger in his vehicle.
Officers were unable to find any handguns in connection to the alleged robbery.
If convicted, Durr could face up to 15 years in prison.
