Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - A strange twist to the stabbing in South Fargo yesterday.

Police say 18-year old Obsa Ali Omer, used Craigslist to lure his victim for an adult encounter, but his only intent was to rob him.

Police say Omer is also linked to two other incidents in Fargo, and two in Moorhead.

The 41-year-old victim suffered a gash on the arm.

Police say Omer used the website, because victims are less likely to come forward, after replying to an adult ad.

Chief David Ebinger/Moorhead Police Department: “We really want the public, if you were victimized by this; if you have any additional information on Mr. Omer or on these activities, please contact us.”

Omer faces assault, robbery and possession of marijuana charges.
