Fargo police arrest two men in northside robbery

FARGO – Police arrested two robbery suspects late Sunday night outside an apartment complex in north Fargo.

A 21-year-old male victim noticed he was being followed when he drove home at about 11:40 p.m. Two suspects got out of their vehicle and confronted the man, said Lt. Joel Vettel of the Fargo Police Department.

One of the men threw what appeared to be pea rock at the victim and demanded money. The victim also was punched in the face, Vettel said.

“It doesn’t appear money was given to them,” Vettel said. The suspects then drove off.

The victim was able to give a detailed description of the vehicle and the men, and police arrested two Moorhead men for strong-armed robbery: Jonathan Richard Corbin, 22, who also was arrested for drunken driving, and William James Kuta, 21.

Both men were intoxicated, Vettel said.
