Email News Alerts

A man who was punched in the head with brass knuckles in downtown Grand Forks in 2008 is suing his attacker.

Allen Larsien, 46, is seeking more than $12,000 in damages, including medical costs and lost wages, from David Exelbert, a former airman who was stationed at Grand Forks Air Force Base.


In September 2008, Exelbert hit Larsien in the forehead with the brass knuckles, causing severe bleeding and permanent scarring, court documents say.
