Woman in custody after man fatally stabbed in St. Paul
St. Paul police on Sunday arrested a woman in connection to a man’s stabbing death the night before, according to a news release.
Police say officers went to the intersection of Marshall Avenue and Arundel Street around 7:15 p.m. Saturday for a report of an assault and found a man who had been stabbed in the chest sitting next to his vehicle.
The man, identified Monday as 55-year-old Pierre Scott Glass, died in the hospital.
Investigators then found what the City identified as the crime scene Sunday at a home several blocks away on Dayton Avenue.
Authorities arrested 51-year-old Jacquelyn Olivia Vann of St. Paul “on suspicion of murder” in connection to Glass’ death, police said. She awaits formal charges in the Ramsey County Jail.
St. Paul police tell 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS that Vann and Glass were in a relationship and that the stabbing was believed to be the result of an altercation between the two at Vann’s home.
Early police information indicates the man then left the Dayton Avenue crime scene on his own before being discovered by responding officers several blocks away.
Investigators are working to gather more information about Saturday night’s events but are not looking to arrest anyone else in connection to the stabbing.
