A man and woman were arrested and have both appeared in court after they were charged with robbery with a firearm and assault.

The charges come from an incident on June 16 in the 400-block of Swift Street. Patrol officers were called to a multi-unit residential facility for a report of a robbery. Investigators say a man and woman had been to the facility earlier that day and robbed a resident with a handgun.

The female victim was also assaulted resulting in non-life-threatening injuries.
