The morning of Dec. 9, Coon Rapids Police officers responded to a report of a kidnapping/assault involving a gun that had taken place the previous evening at the Holiday Station store at Hanson and Northdale boulevards, north of Highway 10.

According to the complaint, an adult male told police that he was at the station when a former roommate, who he identified as Huber, got into his vehicle, carrying a black hand gun and threatening to shoot him.

The complaint alleges that Huber was upset with the man over a situation involving Huber’s ex-girlfriend.

The man alleged that Huber punched him and hit him with the gun several times.

Huber allegedly made the man drive throughout various locations in Coon Rapids, then in the area of Hanson Boulevard and 121st Avenue, he and Huber were struggling over the gun when an unknown male opened the door, telling Huber to drop the weapon.

Huber fled and police put out a pick up and hold on him for probable cause felony offenses, according to the Coon Rapids Police report.

Huber was arrested and jailed the early morning hours of Dec. 11, the Anoka County Jail log shows.

The victim’s injuries included a swollen eye and cuts.

The man alleged that Huber stole his cell phone.

Surveillance video footage from the Holiday station allegedly showed Huber enter the victim’s car, holding an object in his hand, the car sitting for several minutes, then leaving with the victim and Huber inside.

According to court records, Huber is currently on probation for two years following a felony terroristic threats conviction in Hennepin County June 21. He served time in the Hennepin County Workhouse.
