2 Minnesota Men Charged In Ax-Wielding Robbery
INVER GROVE HEIGHTS (AP) — Two men are accused of robbing an Inver Grove Heights man and attacking him with a battle ax.
Twenty-two-year-old Jacob Anhalt and 31-year-old Randy Knight, both of Inver Grove Heights, are charged with burglary, aggravated robbery and theft.
According to the complaint, Anhalt made arrangements to come to the victim’s home on Dec. 21. When the victim opened the door, he told police two men wearing masks came running inside. One of the men was carrying a large sword and the other was carrying a battle ax.
One of the men allegedly hit the victim in the head with the ax.
Anhalt and Knight were later found in a truck that was reported stolen from the home. The two were in jail Monday.
