Burglary Conviction Results in 10 Years on Probation
Rochester, MN (KROC AM News) - A Rochester man has been sentenced to 10 years on probation for a burglary conviction.
28-year-old Abdikadir Ali Noor earlier pleaded guilty to a gross misdemeanor burglary charge through a deal with prosecutors that led to the dismissal of two felony burglary counts and several misdemeanor charges.
He was arrested last November and was accused of entering a woman’s apartment and assaulting her. The 37-year-old woman says she woke up around 10 a.m. and saw a strange man looking through her bedroom closet. When the woman tried calling police, she says the man grabbed her by the hair and threw her to the floor while demanding to know where he could find the money.
When she responded that she didn’t know what he was talking about, the woman says Noor smashed her TV with a tire iron. He then said he was going to call 911 if he didn’t get his money back, and then followed through with his threat to call the police. When officers arrived at the residence in the 1200 block of 4 ½ Street Northwest, they took Noor into custody.
Court documents show Noor had called police earlier the same day to report that he had been robbed of $3400.
