MN man faces attempted murder charge in NDCROSBY, N.D. — A Minnesota man faces charges including attempted murder after a weekend stabbing in the western North Dakota oil patch.
Christopher Baumgartner, of Olivia, Minn., is charged with attempted murder, terrorizing, reckless endangerment and aggravated assault. His bond is set at $250,000. Court documents do not list an attorney for him.
KXMC-TV reports (http://bit.ly/1hZa96g ) that two other men face lesser charges in the stabbing near Crosby.
Baumgartner is accused of stabbing Christian Boen with a machete that had a blade nearly a foot long. Boen received more than a dozen stitches and has been released from a hospital.
Investigators allege that Baumgartner and Boen had an argument about a truck being either borrowed or stolen.
