Three Arrested in Violent Rochester Home Invasion
Rochester, MN (KROC AM News) - Three men were arrested early Friday as suspects in a home invasion that sent a woman to the hospital.
Police Capt. Casey Moilanen says a 19-year-old called 911 around 10:00 PM Thursday to report the violent incident in a unit at an apartment complex in the 3000 block of Town Club Parkway SE, near Eastwood Park.
The teen told officers he had lined up a marijuana purchase with 18-year-old Nelson Soro. Moilanen says the teen told officers Soro showed up at his apartment. But instead of bringing marijuana, he brought three friends and the victim says they burst into the apartment. The victim says two of them had guns. For unknown reasons, one of the intruders hit a 20-year-old female over the head with a hard object. She was later taken to St. Marys Hospital.
The intruders left a few minutes later. It’s not known if they took anything. Moilanen says Soro was arrested a few hours later, as were the other two.
They have been identified as 18-year-old Mohamed Mohamed and 19-year-old Ngor Mabor, all of Rochester.
