CRYSTAL, Minn. (FOX 9) - A young mother says she is lucky to be alive, after her ex-boyfriend stabbed her around a dozen times early Monday morning.
Crystal Police responded to the home near the 5000 block of Douglas Drive, after receiving a 911 call of someone screaming for help. When officers arrived, they found two women and a man suffering from knife wounds.
The victim tells FOX 9 that she had an Order of Protection against the suspect, who stabbed her and her mother in their home overnight. The woman’s one-year-old daughter was also in the room and witnessed the violent scene.
After struggling with the suspect, the victim says she was able to turn the knife on the perpetrator.
Police say the stabbing is being investigated as a domestic violence incident and the man who was injured has been detained pending formal charges.
The victim is the cousin of Monique Baugh, the Twin Cities realtor kidnapped and murdered on New Years Eve 2019. Baugh’s aunt was the other victim.
Police said the incident is not believed to be random and there is no danger to the public.
The stabbing remains under investigation. Anyone with information on the incident is asked to call the Crystal Police Department tip line at 763-531-1014.
