ROCHESTER, Minn. – A man accused of violating a restraining order by entering a woman’s house and giving her a pipe was eventually arrested after fleeing police and rolling a vehicle.
Rochester police say 31-year-old Phillip Berg entered a residence Jan. 31 at 2:30 a.m. in the 900 block of 2nd Ave. NW.
After giving the woman a plumbing pipe, Berg was located around 4:40 on Monday in a vehicle near 4th St. and 10th Ave. SE.
