Suspect arrested in Duluth stabbing

Duluth police arrested a 52-year-old woman on Tuesday after a woman was stabbed in the city’s Central Hillside neighborhood on Monday night.

Authorities reported that police were dispatched to the vicinity of Lake Avenue and Fourth Street just before 9 p.m. Monday on a report of a stabbing, but officers were unable to locate a victim, suspect or crime scene. Local hospitals did not have a patient with stab wounds at that time.

At about 11:30 p.m., a local hospital contacted police reporting that they were treating a woman with non-life-threatening stab wounds.

After speaking with the victim, officers identified a female suspect who was known to the victim. She was booked into the St. Louis County jail on a preliminary charge of second-degree assault.

The News Tribune generally does not identify suspects until they have been formally charged.
