On September 4, at about 1 in the morning, a couple got off a Metro bus at Fremont and Broadway Ave. N., and were immediately followed by two black males. One of the males got in front of the couple, stuck a gun in their faces, and demanded "everything right now." So the male victim handed over wallet, cell phone, and "personal paperwork."

At about 8 p.m. that same day, the male victim called police to say he'd just seen the robber at Emerson and Broadway. For those who know the alphabet song by heart, and realize Emerson is right next to Fremont, that would be a block away from the robbery.
Police went to the scene and arrested Quasim Jameel Owens who, conveniently, had a...
...gun sticking out of his pants pocket. Like most of the North Minneapolis criminals who are involved in gun crimes (allegedly) Owens has already been convicted of a crime and is prohibited from possessing firearms.
According to the criminal complaint, Owens lives at 1526 Dupont Ave. N., a homesteaded property owned by a relative who is also named Owens.
