STEWARTVILLE, Minn. - A 26-year-old Rochester man is facing felony charges after allegedly displaying a handgun and robbing a man.

Sean Blass, 26, allegedly sold a cell phone for nearly $700 to the 19-year-old victim but the phone wouldn’t activate.

When the two met again Friday in the 1400 block of 2nd Ave. NW, Blass allegedly displayed a handgun and took the phone.
