Man charged in 2009 attempted murder now faces assault charge

A Rochester man on probation for his role in an attempted murder when he was 16 has been arrested for an assault dating back to February.

Emanuel Chol Alfred, 22, was taken into custody Wednesday at his Rochester home after an investigation connected him to the Feb. 28 assault in the Second Street parking ramp, said Capt. John Sherwin.

Authorities received a tip about that incident from CrimeStoppers at the end of September, the report says. A photo lineup was assembled; the victim allegedly identified Alfred as the attacker.

He's expected to be arraigned today or Friday.

Alfred was the gunman in a December 2009 shooting, court records show.


He and three other teens were originally charged in juvenile court; prosecutors asked that they be tried as adults.

The four were accused of going to an apartment in the 1500 block of Third Avenue Northeast shortly after midnight on Dec. 13 to collect money allegedly owed for drugs.

Authorities say a 47-year-old man, who was visiting his friends there, jumped in front of a 20-year-old woman to protect her when gunfire erupted. The man was shot once in the left elbow and once in the left ankle.

Alfred was sentenced in March 2010 to 130 months in prison, stayed for 20 years, and 22 days in jail with credit for 22 days served.
