A woman has been arrested in Minnesota after allegedly stabbing a man and a woman in Beltrami County. According to the police, they received a call around noon from two people who claimed to have been stabbed in their house. When the police arrived, a man said that one of his ex-girlfriends had broken in and stabbed him and another woman. The ex-girlfriend reportedly got into a vehicle and fled the scene.
The man was able to describe the vehicle to the authorities. They tracked down the vehicle a short distance from the house and found the woman inside. The police arrested her and charged her with burglary and assault. According to the police, she didn’t resist when she was arrested.
The man and the woman were treated for their injuries and sent to a nearby hospital for further treatment. Their medical status has not been released to the public. The alleged attacker is currently in jail awaiting a hearing. Her court date has not yet been scheduled.
What can you do if you’ve been charged with assault?
Sometimes, arguments get heated and tempers flare out of control. Other times, an individual might falsely accuse someone of assault to get back at them. Whatever the case, an assault charge can impact every aspect of your life. An assault conviction on your record could make it difficult to find a job, prevent you from joining the military or block you from renting an apartment. It can even make it difficult for you to go to school.
A criminal defense attorney might be able to get the charge dropped or dismissed in court. Your attorney may examine the facts and work to present the best possible defense during your trial.
