The two men, 22-year-old Angelo M. Dominguez and 21-year-old Marquies D. Angel were charged with first-degree robbery, according to court documents from Scott County.

The Dollar Tree on Locust Street in Davenport was robbed Thursday, October 18 just before 9 p.m., according to a statement from the Davenport Police Department.  Officers were told that two people came into the store with a handgun, threatening staff and demanding money.
