A 30-year-old man will receive a stay of imposition for injuring a woman during an alleged robbery in June 2020.
Guled Mohamoud Hussein, of Fridley, was sentenced Sept. 10 to 90 days in jail and three years probation for felony criminal vehicular operation. The sentence is a stay of imposition, so if Hussein successfully completes probation, the conviction will be changed to a misdemeanor. His other charge, simple robbery, was dropped.
On July 30, 2020, at 2:14 p.m. a woman’s purse was allegedly stolen in Columbia Heights. The woman ran after the alleged thief, 29-year-old Mohamud Mohamed Hassan, and tried to retrieve her purse, but Hassan allegedly shoved her out of the vehicle.
Hussein, the driver, then drove away and ran over the victim’s leg, resulting in a right ankle fracture.
Hassan, the other suspect, has an omnibus hearing scheduled for Oct. 26.
