Charge Dropped in Stabbing of UMD Football Player
Judge Rules Not Enough Probable Cause in Duluth Stabbing
A judge has dismissed the charge against a man accused of stabbing a UMD football player last summer.
Twenty–three year old Xavier Davis had been charged with second degree assault.
He was accused of stabbing and punching 22 year old Austin Sikorski in the abdomen outside of a Duluth bar during a fight in August.
Recently Davis’ defense attorney asked the judge to dismiss the case because of a lack of probable cause.
The prosecutors opposed the motion but Judge Eric Hylden ruled with the defense.
Charges can be pursued again in the future if the Duluth Police Department re–opens their investigation and collects more evidence.
