Duluth Standoff Suspect Also Accused of Attempted Armed Robbery in Superior

SUPERIOR, Wis. – The Superior Police Department released the timeline of crimes, including attempting to rob a bank at gunpoint in Superior, allegedly perpetrated by the suspect, Cody Lee Walker Nelson, 30, of Duluth, who was arrested Friday evening after a 7-hour standoff with the Duluth Police Department.

According to a spokesperson with Superior Police, at about 12:43 p.m. Friday officers responded to a roundabout at the base of the Bong Bridge to stop a wrong-way driver traveling towards Superior in the Duluth-bound lanes in a dark blue SUV.

After arriving, law enforcement learned the vehicle was likely stolen from Duluth, and witnesses told them it turned around and went back there.

Around 1:36 p.m., according to authorities, Superior Officers were dispatched to the Associated Bank branch in the 1600 block of Belknap St., on a call of a male who had attempted to commit an armed robbery at the bank using the drive-through window.
