Man who died in Windom Park neighborhood stabbing identified
Monday, the Hennepin County medical examiner identified the man who died in a stabbing incident in the Windom Park neighborhood of Minneapolis Friday.
The medical examiner identified the man who died as 32-year-old Ryan Peterson and ruled the official cause of death as “multiple sharp force injuries.”
Police responded to the 1800 block of Arthur Street Northeast around 7:40 a.m. Friday for a report of someone trying to break into a home in the area.
Police said an investigation revealed a man and woman were home sleeping when a man who knew the woman broke into the home. Police said the woman in the home had filed a temporary harassment order that had yet to be served against the man who broke into the home.
Officers found a man, later identified as Peterson, suffering from an apparent stabbing inside the home. Peterson died at the scene. The woman, who police have not identified, was able to safely escape from the home.
Police said the Wisconsin State Patrol arrested the stabbing suspect later in the day in Wisconsin.
The incident remains under investigation.
