A Minneapolis man was charged for allegedly holding a Roseville insurance agent at gunpoint Thursday, according to the Pioneer Press.
Michael Kevin Jones, 40, was charged in the Ramsey County District Court with attempted first-degree robbery, possession of a firearm by a felon and possession of stolen property, according to the Star Tribune.
The Pioneer Press reported, Cheri Steinman was approached by Jones around 1 p.m. at her Allstate Insurance office building on West County Road B.
Jones pointed the gun at her asking for money, claiming he needed it and didn't know what else to do, according the Star Tribune.
The police locked down the area for three hours, looking for accomplices and the gun, which was found behind the office building, the Pioneer Press said.
The Star Tribune reported that Jones, who has an extensive criminal record, is expected to make his first court appearance on Monday.
