Rochester Man Gets Probation for Serious Injury Assault
Rochester, MN (KROC-AM News) - One of the 2 people arrested following a serious injury assault in downtown Rochester last August has been sentenced to 2 months in jail. 24-year-old Najib Ahmed was also given a stayed prison sentence of 21 months which could be imposed on him if he gets in trouble during his 5 years on probation.
Ahmed earlier pleaded guilty to a third-degree assault charge stemming from his involvement in an attack on a 27-year-old man who was left unconscious after he was beaten and stomped on in front of Dooley’s restaurant in the early hours of August 13th, 2017. The police report says the victim’s wallet was also stolen by his attackers.
Ahmed was arrested several hours after the incident when police located a car that was seen on a security camera video leaving the vicinity of the crime scene with the assault suspects inside and found Ahmed and a 16-year-old suspect inside a home in the 3100 block of Oxford Lane Northwest.
