MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – A 41-year-old Fridley man was indicted Wednesday in federal court in connection with the armed robbery of two Twin Cities-area shoe stores back in early January.

Peter Christopher Nunn was charged with two counts of interference with commerce by robbery, pursuant to the Hobbs Act.

The indictment alleges that on Jan. 5, 2013, Nunn stole approximately $300 from the Payless ShoeSource store, located at 8510 Springbrook Drive in Coon Rapids while threatening employees with a weapon, later determined to be a BB gun.

It also alleges that on Jan. 7, 2013, Nunn stole about $700 from the Famous Footwear store located at 1593 E. 17th Avenue in Shakopee in the same manner.

If convicted, Nunn faces a potential maximum penalty of 20 years in prison on each count.
