    Police have arrested an 18-year-old Topsham, Maine, man on robbery charges and are looking for his twin brother.

    Chief Christopher Lewis tells the Times Record that Matthew Laurelez was arrested Saturday shortly after he and his brother allegedly pulled a gun and robbed a man they had arranged to meet at an athletic field in town.

    He is being held on $25,000 cash bail on an armed robbery charge. It's not clear if he has a lawyer.

    Police say his twin brother, Alexander Laurelez, was also involved, but as of Tuesday had not been located.

    Police say Alexander Laurelez had the gun while Matthew Laurelez had a weapon resembling a bat.

    Matthew Laurelez's girlfriend is also facing charges for allegedly threatening the victim via electronic message.
