Man loses headphones in holdup

A man walking behind some stores in Brooklyn Park Friday night was robbed of $53 by two men, one of whom was armed with a small revolver.

Police said Troy Dean Craft, 21, of the first block of Ballman Court in Brooklyn Park, was approached by the men about 10:30 p.m. near an alley behind the Dollar Store in the 5000 block of Ritchie Highway.

One of the suspects threatened Mr. Craft with the handgun, demanded money and took the victim's headphones from his radio before running north through an alley.
