Suspect arrested after stabbing in Lake Elmo

Two men hospitalized with non-life threatening injuries

Two men were hospitalized Sept. 8 with injuries that were not life-threatening after being stabbed in a Lake Elmo neighborhood. A man was arrested following the incident.

According to the Washington County Sheriff’s Office, 911 received a call that evening about a man who was cut on his leg. Shortly after 9:30 p.m., while emergency responders were on their way to the 200 block of Cimarron — near Cimarron Golf Course — they learned that the injury was the result of a stabbing.

When sheriff’s deputies arrived on the scene, they found two men who had been stabbed, and a Lakeview ambulance transported the men to Regions Hospital in St. Paul.

One man was taken into custody, the sheriff’s office said in a statement, adding that no other suspects were being pursued in relation to the stabbing, though the incident is still under investigation.
