ROCHESTER, Minn. – A man accused of stabbing two people has been sentenced to five years of probation.

Ali Said Elmi, 38 of Rochester, was arrested in July 2017 and charged with two counts of 2nd degree assault with a dangerous weapon. Rochester police say Elmi had a confrontation with two men over a pool game at one bar, then was attacked by them outside a different bar. Officers say Elmi stabbed one of the men twice in the abdomen and slashed the other in the shoulder.

Elmi pleaded guilty to one count of 3rd degree assault and one count of stalking with intent to injure. In addition to the probation, he was ordered Monday to perform 100 hours of community work service.
