CARLTON, Minn. -- A 37-year-old man is in custody after allegedly attacking two homeowners in northeast Minnesota on Thursday.

The suspect, who authorities said is homeless, is being held in the Carlton County Jail and also faces burglary and assault charges in St. Louis County.

St. Louis County deputies and Hermantown police officers responded to a report of a home invasion burglary in rural St. Louis County, according to the St. Louis County Sheriff's Office. The homeowner said a man burst into the residence, grabbed him and demanded guns and ammunition. The two struggled, and the homeowner's head was cut when he was struck twice with a gun.

The suspect fled with a gun, which was found a short distance away. The homeowner was able to write down the suspect's license plate number and a vehicle description, which traced back to the 37-year-old man.

Less than two hours later and about 20 miles away, Carlton County deputies responded to a report of a man attacking a homeowner near Mahtowa. The suspect was arrested and identified as the same man being sought in the earlier robbery.
