Apple River stabbing: What happened

According to court records, the stabbing happened on the Apple River near the Sunrise Bridge in Somerset, Wisconsin on July 30, 2022. Miu was allegedly looking for a friend's cell phone in the river but was confronted by tubers who said he was acting sketchy. 

As the encounter escalated, Miu allegedly punched a woman in the face before Miu himself was punched, which led to the stabbing. Witnesses started calling 911 at 3:47 p.m., stating there were potentially four or five victims with wounds to the mid to upper body.
