Rochester, MN (KROC-AM News) – A Rochester man has been sentenced to five years in prison for his involvement in a stabbing and robbery last summer and an attempt to elude police last fall.

29-year-old Edgar Barrientos was originally charged with first degree aggravated robbery and second degree assault after he was accused of stabbing a Houston teenager in the parking lot of a Southeast Rochester hotel last August. He later entered into a plea agreement and admitted to a felony terroristic threats charge. Three other men are also charged in that case and or sentenced to probation after admitting to lesser charges.

Barrientos also entered guilty pleas to felony counts of fleeing police and the unlawful possession of a firearm stemming from an incident in October. He was arrested after officers spotted him driving a car near a mobile home park in Southeast Rochester and one of the officers stood in the street with his gun drawn in an effort to stop Barrientos. Instead, he swerved around the officer and crashed into a nearby mobile home when he lost control while attempting to speed away. Police found a loaded handgun and drugs inside the vehicle.
