Two UW-Stout college students were robbed at gunpoint 10:30 p.m. Tuesday night at the Kwik Trip, 2401 Crest View Dr. in Hudson.

The alleged robber was later stopped by the Wisconsin State Patrol and the St. Croix County Sheriff's Department on I-94 near the Baldwin exit.

Hudson Police Chief Marty Jensen said the victims were able to supply a good description of the robber to HPD officers, leading to his quick apprehension.

Jensen said the suspect had a bb gun in his possession.

Arrested was Michael Antoine Payne, 21, of Chicago. He is currently being held at the St. Croix County Jail.
