Rochester man pleads guilty to May 2022 stabbing

(ABC 6 News) – A Rochester man charged with stabbing another man in May 2022 has entered a guilty plea.

20-year-old Mazem Caden Gisi amended his plea to guilty Thursday to second-degree assault. A charge of second-degree attempted murder and another count of second-degree assault were dismissed.

According to court documents, police were called to an apartment complex in SW Rochester, where a 20-year-old man was stabbed in his mid-section.

The victim told police he heard a knock on his apartment door, as well as the voice of his girlfriend’s ex-boyfriend.

When he stepped out into the hallway, he said he felt what he thought was a punch to his abdomen, until he looked down and saw blood.
