ROCHESTER, Minn. – A guilty plea is entered by a man accused of a knife-point robbery.
Phillip Steven Kuch, 34 of Rochester, was arrested on November 17, 2019, and police say he slashed the tires on a vehicle near the Rochester Public Library then later robbed a man near the Calgary Church. The robbery victim says Kuch held a knife to his stomach and said “I told you I was going to get you.”
Kuch pleaded guilty Tuesday to 2nd degree assault and domestic abuse. Charges of 1st degree aggravated robbery, 4th degree damage to property, harassment, and felony stalking will likely be dismissed as part of a plea deal.
Kuch’s sentencing is scheduled for March 4.
