Rochester, MN (KROC-AM News) - A Rochester man is headed to prison for felony assault and stalking convictions.

22-year-old Kareem Hollins was given consecutive sentences totaling 4 1/2 years in prison for assaulting a woman last year after a judge had ordered him to stay away from the victim. The charges in the case accused Hollins of choking her until she passed out. The woman also told police that Hollins punched her "all over her body and on her face" before leaving.

She told police Hollins assaulted her again when he later returned and entered her residence by climbing through a bedroom window. The woman reported to police that Hollins grabbed her by the hair and then kicked her in the mouth and stomach when she fell to the floor.

He previously entered into a plea agreement and admitted to a third-degree assault charge and two counts of felony stalking. 4 other felony charges, including first-degree burglary and tampering with a witness, were dismissed. Hollins was also given credit for the 174 days he has already spent in jail.
