Moorhead police locate, arrest suspect in Friday night knife fight

Police located and arrested a man suspected of stabbing a person in north Moorhead Friday night.

Moorhead Police arrested Corey Richard Northbird, of Moorhead, on charges of second degree assault and third degree assault.

The police were called to an apartment complex at 2415 4th Ave. N., Moorhead, to break up a fight between two people and several others trying to stop it. A knife was reportedly being used as a weapon by Northbird, who allegedly chased the victim down the hallway of lower level of the apartment building with threats to stab the victim.

The victim was transported to the hospital to treat non-life-threatening facial injuries from the fight, but not the result of the knife.

Officers located Northbird later Friday night during their investigation of the assault. He is being held in the Clay Country Jail pending charges.
