A St. Cloud resident has been charged after authorities say he and a group of others chased another man into a residence and attacked him.
Abdinajib Muhumed Mohamed, 20, has been charged in Stearns County with one count of felony first-degree burglary in the case filed in that county on Friday.
The criminal complaint states that Mohamed and a group chased a man into a residence and attacked him, according to a report on the incident. When police arrived, they found a man bleeding from his head and lip.
The victim told police that Mohamed and the others confronted him outside, and one person in the group shouted, “get him” and Mohamed pointed a gun at him.
The man was able to run into a residence, but Mohamed and the group chased him inside and continued attacking him. The victim was finally able to escape through a window.
Police later located Mohamed and found a pill bottle on him with the address of the residence on it.
Mohamed was convicted in July on fifth-degree assault related to a 2018 Benton County robbery case. Two felony charges of aiding first-degree aggravated robbery and aiding third-degree assault were dismissed in the case. Mohamed was placed on probation and given credit for 54 days already served in jail and was released.
Court records show that two warrants for Mohamed’s arrest have been issued since the July conviction. One for an alleged probation violation and one for failure to appear at a hearing related to the probation violation. Mohamed was released on zero bail following separate arrests on both warrants, most recently on January 10.
Mohamed made his first appearance in court on the new charge on Friday and was granted a public defender. He remains in custody on $100,000 bail and is scheduled for another hearing on April 21.
