MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — One man is in the hospital and another man is in custody following a stabbing in St. Cloud Monday.
According to police, officers responded to a knife complaint at around 9 p.m. to a residence on the 1200 block of Breckenridge Avenue. As they arrived, officers found a victim, a 47-year-old St. Cloud man, suffering from multiple knife wounds. The victim was taken to St. Cloud Hospital for non-life threatening injuries.
