Sleepwalking used as defense in court

8 June 2012, Friday /AP
A Connecticut man accused of attempting to rob a woman at knifepoint in an elevator at the Mohegan Sun casino says he was sleepwalking at the time.

Attorney Nicholas D’Amato told a judge Wednesday that he plans to use a medical defense for Winston Riley based on that claim, the Norwich Bulletin reported in Thursday’s editions. The Bridgeport man was arrested on March 18 after the woman told police he had flashed a large knife and tried to grab her purse while the two were alone in a parking garage elevator, police said. Riley said he was awakened by the woman when she ran away in confusion and fright, D’Amato said.
