The 17-year-old girl was stabbed under her left arm. Emergency crews treated her and took her to St. Cloud Hospital. Her injuries are not life threatening.

The girl told police she didn't know the suspect and didn't know why he attacked her.

De Beche is refusing to speak with police. Police are still investigating what led up to the stabbing.

In light of the incident, Walmart staff closed the store for the evening.
