Dubuque Man Charged With Robbery

After nearly five months Dubuque police have arrested a man for attempting to rob a Dubuque woman and her son at gunpoint. Police arrested 29 year old Brandon Thomas this week and charged him first degree robbery. On the night of September 12th police say a woman and her son were just about to enter their home in the 500 block of Almond Street, when a masked man, later identified as Thomas, appeared carrying a semi-automatic weapon. He allegedly told the pair to “give me what you got”, as he tried to force his way inside the residence. After a brief struggle, Thomas fled the area in a car. Investigators used traffic camera and private surveillance video to identify the vehicle that left the crime scene. It was identified as a car belonging to Thomas’ girlfriend. Cell phone records were also used to tie Thomas to the crime. He will be back in court on February 8th.
