MT. IRON, Minn.- A 19-year-old man has been arrested in connection to the midnight bar fight that left two victims with stab wounds on Wednesday, according to the St. Louis County Sheriff’s Office.

The teen was arrested at his home in Virginia hours later, around 9:30 a.m., and booked into jail on preliminary charges of second-degree assault.

FOX21 cannot name the suspect until he is formally charged.

According to the Sheriff’s Office, deputies were called out to the Sawmill Saloon around 12:35 a.m. Wednesday for a report that a fight broke out and two people had been stabbed.

The victims, a 26-year-old man and a 35-year-old man, were brought to the Virginia Regional Medical Center with injuries that weren’t life-threatening, where they were treated and released.

The Sheriff’s Office says it found evidence at the suspect’s home that matches up with the crime scene at the saloon.

The investigation is ongoing.
