MOORHEAD-Two men face charges in connection with a Moorhead home invasion in November.

Lavri Samuel Jacobawi, 18, Fargo, faces charges of first-degree aggravated robbery, first-degree burglary, first-degree assault and second-degree assault with a dangerous weapon.

Patrick Andrew Jaden, 22, Fargo, is charged with first-degree burglary, aiding first-degree assault, aiding first-degree aggravated robbery, and aiding second-degree assault with a dangerous weapon.

Jacobawi and Jaden are accused of bursting into a Moorhead apartment on Nov. 20. Once in the apartment, Jacobwawi pointed a gun at a resident of the apartment while demanding money, according to court documents.

The victim later told police he owed Jacobawi's sister about $1,500 and that that could have been the motive for the attack. The victim said the gun may have been made of plastic, but he wasn't sure and he was frightened it might be real.
