FARGO, N.D. (AP) - Bail has been set at $75,000 for a Fargo teenager accused of trying to rob and kidnap a woman at a local mall.

Abdirahman Sahel is charged with felony robbery, criminal attempt and terrorizing. He also faces a simple assault misdemeanor.

Although Sahel was 15 at the time of the attack, KFGO-AM reports prosecutors pushed for the case to be transferred to adult court because of the severity of the crimes. The Cass County State’s Attorney’s office announced last week that the transfer was approved.

Police say Sahel attacked the woman as she was getting into her car outside the West Acres Shopping Center in September. He’s accused of flashing a gun and punching the woman in the head.

Sahel is scheduled to return to court next month. It wasn’t immediately clear if he has an attorney yet.
