ROCHESTER, Minn. – One sentence is handed down for a violent robbery in Rochester.

Mitchell Neil Winslow, 23 of Rochester, was ordered Monday to spend 10 years on supervised probation and either pay a $500 fine or do 50 hours of community work service. He pleaded guilty to simple robbery in July for an incident on June 15.

Police say Winslow and Kaylee Anne Vartanian, 19 of Stewartville, attacked and robbed a 20-year-old man after he got into a car. The two were accused of choking the man, stealing $300 and his cell phone, then throwing him out of the car.

Vartanian entered a not guilty plea to 1st degree aggravated robbery. Her trial is scheduled to begin on December 10.
