Minot police kept busy during 12-hour time frame

MINOT, N.D. — It was a busy Saturday for Minot police.

It began about 2 p.m. when authorities received a 911 call from a 14-year-old girl reporting that two men had broken into her home and were assaulting her and her mother.

Police eventually arrested 47-year-old Glen Gillstrap and 38-year-old Harley Osterlund. They are charged with conspiracy to commit burglary. A third suspect remains at large.

At 6 p.m. police received a report of a bomb threat at Dakota Square Mall. Investigators determined the report was false and arrested the alleged caller for terrorizing.

Shortly after midnight, authorities responded to a call about a fight that involved a gun at The Sports on Tap Bar. Police say a firearm was brandished during the argument. Two men were arrested for terrorizing.
