St. Paul Man Charged For Kidnapping, Robbing Couple

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A St. Paul man is charged in the kidnapping of a couple from a grocery store parking lot.

Police say the man pictured in surveillance video is 42-year-old Jason Armstrong.

They say he may have been posing as a parking lot attendant at the Roseville Cub Food store on North Snelling Avenue last month.

That’s when police say he forced a couple who had been loading groceries into their car to drive to an ATM.

He later robbed them.

Armstrong is also a person of interest in two similar robberies last month at the Kowalski’s Market on Grand Avenue.

In both cases a man forced grocery shoppers at gunpoint to drive him to cash machines, where he then robbed them.
