Four Robbers Beat Fargo Express Man, Escape With $3,000

Fargo, N.D., June 23—(AP)—The American Railway Express office in the Northern Pacific deport was robbed of $3,000 early Friday.

Authorities were unable to gather complete details of the robbery from Oscar E Granskov, in charge of the express office, who is in a semi-conscious condition at a local hospital.

According to Dan Iverson, employee in the baggage room next to the express office, Granskov came into the baggage room about 5 a.m., and said he had been beaten by four men and the office robbed.

Iverson took Granskov home an hour after the robbery is said to have taken place.
