Minnesota roundup: Police investigate Moorhead stabbing; 2 escape injury in NW Minn. rollover crash
MOORHEAD—Moorhead police are trying to figure out who was the aggressor in a Saturday night stabbing that left a man injured.
First responders were dispatched at 7:45 p.m. to the 1200 block of 15th Avenue North, where a 24-year-old man had multiple knife wounds in his chest and arm, according to police scanner discussions. The Moorhead Police Department in a news release described the man's injuries as "serious but non-life-threatening." The unidentified man was taken to a local hospital, the release stated.
A 30-year-old woman was responsible for the man's injuries, according to the release. Lt. Chris Carey said the woman had been identified but was not in custody as of Sunday morning.
The two individuals involved in the case are acquaintances, he added. Carey said Sunday morning no charges had been filed and the case was still active, as officers were trying to figure out who instigated the confrontation.
"This could be a couple days until we figure out charges," he said. "We're still trying to figure out who the primary aggressor was."
There is no threat to the public as it was not a random act, the Police Department stated. Law enforcement declined to name the individuals in the incident but plan to release more information as they become available.
