DUBUQUE (KWWL) -

A 19-year-old from Dubuque was arrested following a report of an armed robbery in broad daylight.

Diquan C. Frazier, 19, was arrested Tuesday and charged with second-degree burglary and second-degree robbery after an incident in the 400 block of Loras Boulevard.

Lieutenant Scott Baxter says an officer was waved down in the area of Loras Boulevard and Bluff Street at around 1:25 p.m. Tuesday by a man who reported he was robbed at gunpoint while sitting in his car in the 400 block of Loras Boulevard.

The victim reported that a struggle ensued after the gun was pointed at him and the suspect left in a vehicle. Baxter says no one was injured in the struggle.

Using the vehicle and suspect description given, police say they stopped Frazier in the 700 block of West Locust Street. Officers say they also found the gun they believe was used in the robbery.

Baxter says it doesn't appear that this was a random act.

Frazier is being held in the Dubuque County Jail on a $50,000 cash bond. Both charges are punishable by up to 10 years in prison and up to a $7,500 fine.
