A Duluth home was robbed at gunpoint for the second time in five months Thursday.

Residents at the home at 131 W. Ninth St. were robbed by two men, one of whom was armed, about 1:43 p.m., according to a news release from the Duluth Police Department.

The news release said police suspect drug activity is the reason for the home being targeted Thursday and on Dec. 5. In both home invasions, police observed drug residue and drug paraphernalia inside the home.

Police do not believe this home invasion is related to the robbery that occurred at 1126 Missouri Ave. about 4:30 p.m. Monday.

The first suspect is described as a black male in his mid-20s to 30, between 6 feet, 3 inches and 6 feet, 4 inches tall with a heavyset build and an unshaven face. He was wearing a black zip-up sweatshirt and blue jeans at the time of the home invasion.
