Assault Investigation Underway in Pine County

​ST. PAUL — The Pine County Sheriff’s Office is investigating an assault that took place early this morning in the city of Finlayson. Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension (BCA) agents and crime scene personnel are assisting with the investigation.

Shortly before 3 a.m. Sunday, Pine County sheriff’s deputies responded to two 911 calls reporting an assault at an apartment on the 6500 block of Broadway Avenue in Finlayson. The victim and the subject, who both live in the apartment, made the calls.

Deputies located a male victim outside of the apartment complex. He was airlifted to North Memorial Health Hospital in Robbinsdale where he is being treated for multiple stab wounds.

A female was located uninjured outside of the residence. She was taken into custody without incident and booked into the Pine County Jail early this morning on probable cause first and second degree assault. Charges are expected to be filed in the next few days.

Investigators believe there is no ongoing threat to the public. There is no video of law enforcement response to the incident.

This remains an active and ongoing investigation. Additional information will be available at the time of charging.
