Formal press release from the Stearns County Sheriff's Office at 20:00 on Monday:
On November 1, 2021 at approximately 10:10 a.m., the Belgrade/Brooten Police Department received a call requesting a welfare check at a residence in the 100 Block of Washburn Avenue in the City of Belgrade. The caller reported receiving a picture of a female that had been stabbed, who was inside the residence located on the 100 block of Washburn Avenue. Belgrade/Brooten Police along with the Stearns County Sheriff’s Office responded to the scene and set up a perimeter, contacted the occupants inside and began negotiations.
As a result of negotiations, the female party was released from inside the residence. Glacial Ridge Ambulance and Life Link Air Ambulance provided medical treatment to the female. The female was transported by ambulance to Paynesville Hospital with non-life threatening stab wounds.
The Benton/Stearns SWAT Team was also been called to the scene. Negotiators continued their negotiation with the male party inside the residence. After several hours, the male party came outside and was taken into custody without incident at approximately 6 p.m.
Several agencies assisted at the scene, including the Minnesota State Patrol, Minnesota DNR, Kandiyohi County Sheriff’s Office, Kandiyohi/Meeker County SWAT Team, Belgrade Fire and Rescue and Life Link Air Ambulance.
The investigation is active and no further information will be released at this time. Investigators will coordinate with the Stearns County Attorney’s Office regarding formal charges.
