Rochester Teenager Charged in 2019 Armed Robbery
Rochester, MN (KROC AM News) - Charges have been filed against a Rochester teenager suspected of robbing a man at knifepoint.
According to the criminal complaint against 19-year-old Goch Khot, the robbery occurred last May at Meadow Park Apartments.
The complaint says the victim was at a friend’s apartment when they heard a knock at the door. Two men were at the door and one of them “pulled out a knife and put it to the victim's chest” and demanded his wallet. The victim complied and told police the wallet contained $2,000 “because he had just been paid.”
The victim said the man took the wallet and ran off. Khot was later identified as the suspect.
Khot was convicted earlier for his role in a 2017 robbery involving a knife and is still on probation for that crime.
