FARGO, N.D. (AP) - A jury in Cass County has convicted a Fargo teenager of trying to rob and kidnap a woman in the parking lot of a Fargo mall almost two years ago.

Seventeen-year-old Abdirahman Sahel was found guilty on Friday of robbery, attempted kidnapping, terrorizing and simple assault. He faces more than two decades in prison if sentenced to the maximum penalty on all four counts.

Authorities say Sahel tried to rob and kidnap the woman as she was getting into her car on Sept. 11, 2014. They say he flashed a gun and punched her in the head.

Sahel was 15 years old when the incident happened. The case was transferred to adult court last year.

Sahel’s attorney did not immediately return a call seeking comment on the case.
