ROCHESTER, Minn. – A man accused of beating an elderly neighbor has been sentenced.

57-year-old Roger Ardell Hareldson of Oronoco pleaded guilty to one count of stalking. The Olmsted County Sheriff’s Office says Hareldson had an argument with his 81-year-old neighbor over a fence line dispute on July 17. Authorities say the neighbor took a swing at Hareldson, who then punched the 81-year-old multiple times and broke several bones in his face.

On Monday, Hareldson was sentenced to 18 days in jail, two years of probation, and ordered to pay a $900 fine or perform 90 hours of community work service.
