Eight people from Fargo accused in scheme to rob prostitution customers



Eight people are facing federal charges in a conspiracy-robbery case linked to prostitution.

The US Attorney’s Office says 20-year-old Harleigh Haugen of Fargo and 21-year-old Jordan Kraft of Fargo worked with others in May and June of last year to rob customers of commercial sex.

The indictment accuses them of posting ads on the website “Skip the Games,” promoting prostitution. They met the victims at apartments or homes and threatened or assaulted them knowing that those responding to the ads would not go to police, prosecutors said.

The other six people charged are also from Fargo.
