MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Minneapolis Police are looking for a suspect after a 39-year-old woman reported being stabbed in her home back in early June, authorities said.
At about 1:30 p.m. on June 7, the victim left her home on the 300 block of East 18th Street for a short time. When she came home to lay down, she was woken up by a male burglar who was armed with a butcher knife, police said.
The suspect asked the victim if she was the only one home and then stabbed her in the arm. The woman fought the suspect and chased him from her home, police said.
