A Perryville man is accused trying to rob two people in one night.

According to police, officers were called to a home around 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 24.

Investigators said the victim told them a man held the victim at gunpoint and demanded money from a third part in exchange for the safe return of the victim.

The suspect let the victim go after hitting that person on the head with a gun.

About three hours later, someone else called 911 to report that a man had broken into his home and demanded money.

During that incident, there was a struggle in which the resident was hurt and the suspect dropped the gun and left.

Officers recovered the gun and were able to identify the suspect.

Danny Rue Sr., 51, was arrested on Wednesday, Nov. 25.

He faces 11 charges including kidnapping, armed criminal action, unlawful use of a weapon, and unlawful possession of a firearm.

Rue is being held on $50,000 cash only bond.
