Stabbing in Popular Nightclub

A 20-year-old woman was stabbed at 1:15 this morning at a club in dowtown Minneapolis, reports Tim Halow of the Star Tribune.

Police say the unnamed victim had an argument with another woman earlier at the club Gay 90s. The woman later walked up the the victim while she was dancing with friends, then assaulted and stabbed her in the chest.

Hundreds of people were inside the club at the time, but police evacuated them so medical personnel could attend to the victim, who was taken to Hennepin County Medical Center.

Police arrested the suspect, a 21-year-old woman from Brooklyn Center. She has not been charged.

Police are also looking for a second suspect.

The Pioneer Press also covered this story. Nancy Yang wrote a very brief blurb (four sentences) about the stabbing and posted it on their Web site today at 7:13 AM. The Star Tribune's article was last updated at 11:04 AM today; the four hour difference is probably why there is such a notable discrepency between the two article's lengths.

It is also possible that the Pioneer Press may not have considered this story particularly newsworthy enough to garner more coverage.
