FARGO — A West Fargo man accused of stabbing another at a south Fargo truck stop was waiting to be paid for helping the alleged victim file his taxes, according to court documents.

Pajebo Hilton Duncan, 30, appeared Friday, March 26, in Cass County District Court on felony charges of attempted murder and terrorizing. The charges stem from a March 22 report of an injured man at Love’s Travel Stop, 3220 39th St. S., in Fargo.

According to a criminal complaint:

Edward Bankey Boe was at Love’s with his friends when Duncan showed up in a vehicle. The two got into an argument and Duncan pulled out a knife to assault Boe.

Boe told police he tried to get into his vehicle, but Duncan got into his vehicle first and drove at Boe three times. Duncan's vehicle hit Boe in the legs and arms, as well as Boe’s vehicle.

Duncan told Boe he would see him again, adding, “I’ll shoot you,” and “I’ll kill you,” before driving away, court documents alleged.

Boe was not seriously injured, but he had several scrapes on his legs and what appeared to be a knife cut on his right hand, the complaint said.

Duncan had helped Boe with his 2020 tax return, the court documents said. Duncan was upset with Boe because Boe hadn’t paid Duncan back for the help, the complaint said.

Boe told police he had not received money from the IRS for his tax return as of March 22.

Duncan turned himself in to police.
