Enderlin man armed with knife, pistol tries to grab officer's Taser, police say

ENDERLIN, N.D. – A 21-year-old Enderlin man is facing charges stemming from a February incident where police say he tried to break into a house here with a gun and a knife to retrieve some video games.

According to charges filed Wednesday in Ransom County District Court, police responded to a disturbance the night of Feb. 15 where Kirk Remington Huxsahl allegedly had tried to break into an acquaintance’s house.

Court records allege Huxsahl told officers he had taken a .40 caliber handgun to the house to try to scare the acquaintance to return the video games. He also had a knife, which he said he was going to use in case anyone tried to take his gun, documents state.

Huxsahl never got the chance to use the knife. The acquaintance told police he “choke slammed” Huxsahl, knocking him out. He then took his gun, according to court records.

When police tried to arrest Huxsahl, he resisted, and even allegedly tried to take an officer’s Taser before finally being subdued, according to the charges against him.

Huxsahl is charged with one count of attempted burglary, a Class B felony, and one count of attempting to disarm a law enforcement officer, a Class C felony.
