Federal Jury Finds Minneapolis Man Guilty of Kidnapping, Bank Fraud, and Aggravated Identity Theft

ST. PAUL, Minn. – A federal jury found a Minneapolis man guilty of kidnapping, bank fraud, and identity theft after robbing two women at gunpoint and stealing from another, announced U.S. Attorney Andrew M. Luger.

According to evidence presented at trial, on September 13, 2022, at approximately 7:30 a.m., Raphael Raymond Nunn, 52, approached a woman in Arden Hills who had just parked her vehicle. Nunn, who was wearing a mask, gloves, and carrying a handgun, forced the victim at gunpoint to drive him to an ATM in Minneapolis and withdraw cash for his own benefit. Nunn then ordered the victim to drive to Matthews Park, where he then ordered her to give him her keys so he could get away.

According to court documents, Nunn was later captured on surveillance videos from surrounding businesses and seen exiting the victim’s vehicle, removing his hood and mask, and entering a nearby corner grocery store. Four days later, Nunn returned to the store driving a vehicle registered in his name which led to the discovery of his address. 

A search of his residence recovered evidence from the kidnapping and revealed Nunn had stolen from a second victim and robbed a third at gunpoint before fraudulently using the victims’ stolen credit cards to obtain money from their bank accounts.

Nunn was arrested on September 22, 2022, at his Minneapolis residence. 

Following a four-day trial before Judge Eric C. Tostrud, Nunn was found guilty yesterday on one count of kidnapping, two counts of bank fraud, and two counts of aggravated identity theft.  A sentencing hearing will be held at a later date.

This case is the result of an investigation conducted by the FBI, the Ramsey County Sheriff’s Office, Oak Park Police Department, and the Hudson Police Department.

Assistant U.S. Attorneys Albania Concepcion and Lauren O. Roso tried the case.
