Rochester Murder Victim Had Recent Violent History
Rochester, MN (KROC AM News) - The Rochester man who died a violent death this week had a recent history of violence.
In fact, he was scheduled to appear in court Wednesday for a felony assault and stalking case.
The body of 28-year-old Garad Hassan Roble was found near Gamehaven Park early Tuesday and an autopsy confirmed he had been shot multiple times.
Roble was arrested Dec. 23rd for punching a woman and threatening her with a knife. He pleaded guilty in January and was awaiting sentencing.
He pleaded guilty in July to breaking the windows of three vehicles and a house after getting into a confrontation with some people who pushed him out of the residence. He was sentenced in September to 5 years probation in that case. At the time of that incident, he was already on probation for an earlier violent confrontation.
That happened in January when court records show he threatened a juvenile female with a knife inside her home. He threatened some other people with the knife when they confronted him. They eventually pushed him out of the house. He was still banging on the door when officers arrived and took him into custody.
