Police have released more information regarding the man who had a stand off with police Friday night.
The suspect has been identified as a 30-year-old from Duluth. A check of his record shows he has convictions for assault, arson, domestic assault, felon in possession of a firearm, and burglary, among other things.
Superior Police sent out a statement Saturday saying that they had an attempted armed robbery at the Associated Bank on Belknap Street on Friday afternoon. The suspect had approached the drive-through window, and allegedly pointed a handgun at the teller. The teller was not hurt. Police also said the suspect's vehicle was found abandoned in Duluth.
