Woman in serious condition following stabbing in Loring Park neighborhood, arrest made

A woman is in serious condition and a male suspect has been arrested following a domestic-related stabbing that occurred in the Loring Park neighborhood of Minneapolis early Wednesday morning.

Officers responded at about 2:27 a.m. after a woman told police she had been stabbed. Authorities arrived at the apartment building on East Grant Street, and found the suspect barricaded inside the apartment with the victim.

Due to the severity of the woman’s injuries, police made a life-saving decision and forced entry into the apartment after negotiating with the suspect briefly. The woman was transported to a hospital in serious condition with apparent knife wounds.

The suspect was also transported to the hospital due to his heightened state, according to the Minneapolis Police Department. He is expected to be booked into Hennepin County Jail as soon as he is cleared from the hospital.

The incident is under investigation.
