ROCHESTER, Minn. – A man who claimed he was sleepwalking during a robbery has decided to plead guilty.
Anthony Terrell Hemphill, 22 of Rochester, entered a guilty plea Friday to simple robbery, downgraded from a charge of 1st degree aggravated robbery. Rochester police say he robbed a man outside a downtown bar on August 18, sucker punching him and holding a gun on the victim.
Officers say Hemphill was found with the victim’s debit card in his possession.
Though he was seen on video surveillance, Hemphill initially said he wasn’t downtown and “must have been sleepwalking.”
His sentencing is scheduled for November 19.
