ST. CLOUD, Minn. (KNSI) - A Sartell man is behind bars after police say a drug deal turned into a robbery.

It happened on the 400 block of 33rd Avenue North in St. Cloud just before 8 p.m. Thursday, according to St. Cloud police.

Police said Giovanni Guzman, 36, of Sartell sold another man a small amount of marijuana, then pulled a replica firearm and demanded cash from that buyer.

A fight broke out between the two and was stopped only when a passing police officer noticed the melee.

Guzman was arrested and charged with aggravated robbery as well as sale and possession of a controlled substance.

The victim, a 45-year-old man from St. Cloud, did not suffer any serious injuries.
