The incident happened last October at the El Carambas Restaurant in southeast Rochester.  Police say 40 year old William Schick entered through a back door and grabbed a case of beer. An employee spotted him and followed him outside.  When the employee confronted the would-be thief in the parking lot, Schick pulled out a knife. The employee backed off and Schick dropped the beer and fled. He was apprehended a short while later.  He recently pleaded guilty to a felony assault charge.  A more serious robbery charge was dropped as part of a plea deal.
