Police: Man fatally stabbed in Windom Park neighborhood; suspect arrested in Wisconsin

A suspect in a fatal stabbing Friday morning in the city’s Windom Park neighborhood has now been arrested and charged, court documents show.

According to Minneapolis Police Department Public Information Officer Garrett Parten, officers were called to the 1800 block of Arthur Street Northeast around 7:40 a.m. Friday after they received a report of someone trying to break into a residence.

Police say their investigation so far shows a man and woman were home sleeping when a man who knew the woman broke into the home.

Parten initially stated during a briefing at the scene the woman had an order of protection against the man, but then corrected himself to say she had a temporary harassment order that had yet to be served. Police didn’t provide specific details regarding how the woman and the man who broke into the home knew each other.

When officers arrived, they found a man in his 30s had been stabbed. He died at the scene, and wasn’t immediately identified by police. The woman was able to safely escape.

Officials add the suspect, 31-year-old Franklin Terrol White, left the scene as officers arrived. He was arrested later in the day in Wisconsin by the Wisconsin State Patrol.

Online court records show White has been formally charged with second-degree intentional murder.

The man’s death marks the city’s 57th homicide of 2022.
