When the men demanded money, the victim said he would call a friend who owed him money and they could meet the friend at a convenience store.

The suspects drove the victim to the store in a pickup belonging to the victim's brother that had been loaded with items, including a 42-inch television belonging to the victim.

The suspects told the victim to go to his friend's vehicle and return with the money.

Instead, the victim got into his friend's vehicle and told him to drive away, according to the court documents.

The suspects were later stopped by the North Dakota Highway Patrol and arrested.
