Teen arrested in Burnsville double stabbing

An 18-year-old Egan teen was arrested in connection to a double stabbing involving a 35-year-old woman and a 24-year-old man, reported the Pioneer Press.

Both victims were stabbed at their Burnsville townhouse late Tuesday night reported the Pioneer Press.

Police Sgt. Dan Carlson said that police were dispatched to the 1600 block of Riverwood Drive at midnight. He added that the man was stabbed in the back while the woman was stabbed in the neck. Carlson said that both victims were bought to the Hennepin County Medical Center, and they both have potentially life threatening injuries.

The Pioneer Press said that the teen was arrested and is currently in custody at the Dakota County Jail and is awaiting charges.

The names of the suspects were not included in the story because they were not released by the sheriff's office.
