FARGO - Fargo police say an attempt to buy marijuana turned into a robbery Wednesday when the two sellers attacked the buyer and took his money.

According to Sgt. Mark Lykken:

The victim, a 22-year-old Fargo man, met with the two men in the 10th Street underpass at Main Avenue. After he agreed to buy marijuana from them, they punched him in the face, displayed a knife and took an undisclosed amount of money out of his wallet.

The victim sustained minor cuts and scrapes during the robbery, which was reported at 1:31 a.m.

The suspects were both described as white males, 17 to 20 years old. One was about 5 feet 8-inches tall with a skinny build and shaggy blonde hair, wearing a white T-shirt and khaki shorts. The other suspect had short, dark brown hair, a medium muscular build and medium-length mustache and goatee, and was last seen wearing a black T-shirt and dark pants.
