ROCHESTER, Minn. – A plea deal is reached with a man accused of threatening to kill someone over a cell phone passcode.

Jose Luis Delgado Jr., 20 of Plainview, has pleaded guilty to gross misdemeanor stalking. In exchange, felony charges of 2nd degree assault and threats of violence have been dismissed.

Rochester police say Delgado pulled out a knife and a machete and jabbed at his victim when he refused to tell Delgado the phone code.
