MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Police say a 12-year-old girl is in critical condition at St. Mary’s Hospital in Rochester after being stabbed in the chest on Tuesday.

Authorities said the incident happened early in the morning on Tuesday at the girl’s home. According to police, a 31-year-old man is believed to be the suspect and is an acquaintance of the girl’s mother.

Police said the man fled the residence after the stabbing, and a standoff ensued when they thought the suspect fled to a nearby apartment complex. When authorities entered the building they believed he was in, it was empty.

Authorities said the man was arrested without incident Tuesday afternoon.

Police said the girl’s mother also suffered minor injuries in a struggle with the man. The incident is still under investigation.
