Fargo 52-year-old arrested for alleged stabbing

FARGO – A 52-year-old Fargo man was arrested Wednesday night after police linked him to a stabbing incident in downtown Fargo.

According to police Lt. Joel Vettel:

At about 11:15 p.m. Wednesday, an officer in the 300 block of Broadway came across a man who appeared to have a stab wound to his chest.

At about the same time, an officer in the 100 block of Broadway was flagged down by someone who pointed out what appeared to be a blood trail.

With the stabbing victim being uncooperative, officers followed the trail of blood, which appeared to belong to the victim, to a nearby apartment, where a woman was found who had suffered a cut to her arm.

Also at the apartment, officers arrested a man identified by Vettel as Eddie L. Walker on suspicion of aggravated assault and terrorizing.

Vettel said it is believe Walker threatened to kill both the male who had suffered a stab wound and the female who had suffered a cut.

Vettel said the male victim was taken to the hospital via ambulance. He said his condition was not known.
