Detroit Lakes Minnesota 511 Washington Avenue 56501

A 43-year-old Duluth man is being held in the St. Louis County Jail accused of stabbing another man with a sword.

Police were called to the Duluth Detoxification Center, 1402 E. Superior St., when the victim walked in with a stab wound to his chest. He was transported to St. Luke's hospital for treatment of a serious injury, police said.

Officers found a blood trail in drifting snow that led them to a residence in the 1000 block of East Third Street. An investigation led to the arrest of one of the occupants, who is expected to be charged with first-degree assault.

The sword believed used in the stabbing was found inside the residence and collected as evidence.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call the Duluth police Violent Crimes Unit at (218) 730-5050.
