FARGO, N.D. (AP) — A Fargo man who was arrested after struggling with a citizen who tried to take a rifle from him during an attempted armed robbery at a convenience store has been criminally charged.

Eighteen-year-old John Holeton is charged with robbery, theft and felony assault. Holeton was arrested shortly after the attempted robbery at Tesoro on Feb. 11.

KFGO reports a criminal complaint says Holeton had a rifle that had been stolen when he entered the store. He’s accusing of striking the man who stopped the hold-up in the throat with the barrel of the rifle. It was not immediately clear if Holeton has a defense attorney.
