ROCHESTER, Minn. - Arrests were made in a weekend assault while a weekend robbery is still being investigated.
The alleged assault happened at 2:37 a.m. Sunday when two females, 22 and 43, were walking to a parking ramp near Dooley’s Pub.
The females allegedly saw a man they know, identified as 26-year-old Vidal Aknis, before he allegedly began to confront them.
