FARGO – Two brothers and another suspect are accused of breaking into a man’s residence, pointing a gun and a knife at his face, threatening to kill him and stealing $500 from him.

The incident was reported at 1:45 a.m. today at 1119 N. University Dr.

The victim told Fargo police that the three men broke down his door, grabbed him and pointed the gun and knife at his face. He said they threatened to kill him and demanded money, then reached into his pocket and grabbed $500, Sgt. Glen Hanson said.

The victim was acquainted with the suspects and was able to give police partial names and information on a vehicle.

Police found the maroon Cadillac parked on the street in the 2500 block of Arrowhead Road, southwest of the South University Drive Kmart. A K-9 unit tracked the suspects to a nearby apartment unit, where they were arrested, Hanson said.
