(KVLY) A Minnesota man is behind bars after beating another man with a coffee mug, then stabbing him with the broken shards.

Bemidji police say they're worried the bizarre crime could be a sign of increased gang activity in their community.

Last year, dozens of members of a gang called the "Native Mob" were charged in a major sting operation at Bemidji, and on the 3 reservations surrounding it.

The men involved in the October 10th beating and stabbing claim to be part of another gang known as the "Gangster Disciples".
