Tuesday, January 22, 2013 - 5:28 pm

Fort Wayne Police have arrested a man in connection with a Jan. 10 armed robbery at a north-side apartment complex.

Devonte M. Hamlet, 20, of Fort Wayne, faces two counts of armed robbery and three charges of criminal confinement. Hamlet and another man allegedly forced a woman inside her apartment in the 8700 block of Gulf Drive at about 10:12 p.m. Jan. 10 and held her at gunpoint while robbing the apartment, according to police.

Police are investigating a string of armed robberies that have been reported recently at local apartment complexes. Officer Raquel Foster, a Fort Wayne Police spokeswoman, said detectives are making "significant progress" with the investigations.

Hamlet was being held in the Allen County Jail.
