LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville Metro Police say they've arrested a man after he and an accomplice robbed a man and a woman in their own home, holding them at gunpoint and stuffing them into a closet.
According to an arrest report, the robbery occurred on May 1.
Police say 30-year-old Ricardo Trabue and an accomplice went to the home, and when the one of the residents opened the door, the suspects pulled guns and forced their way in.
