Two suspects are in the Mower County jail after an alleged armed robbery Tuesday night in southwest Austin.

Police went to the 900 block of Second Avenue Southwest at about 5:30 p.m. after a resident reported he was robbed at gunpoint. The victim said the suspects stole $50 from him and pointed a black revolver at his head.

Police arrested one man as he was exiting the house and arrested the other just inside the home. According to the police report, the second suspect refused to keep his hands in the air, so officers shocked him with a Taser.
