BECKER CO., MINN. (Valley News Live) - The Becker County Sheriff’s Office says it responded to a stabbing in Pine Point.

It happened just before 2:30 this morning. When deputies got to the scene, the victim was conscious, but he had a stab wound to the chest.

Officials say the suspect, 25-year-old Marcus Waybenais, left before law enforcement got there. The victim was taken to a local hospital. There are no details on his condition at this time.

Waybenais was arrested several hours later in that same area for 1st & 2nd Degree Assault. He’s in the Becker County Jail. Formal charges are pending review by the Becker County Attorney’s Office.
