Duluth Men Charged With Attempted Murder After Stabbings, Home Invasion

Police: The injured victims were not known to the suspects.


DULUTH, Minn. – One of the victims in a stabbing and home invasion in Duluth’s Kenwood neighborhood suffered 15 to 20 stab wounds – and it was all over a stolen cell phone charger, according to court documents.

Dustin St. Clair, 27, and Tristan St. Clair, 22, both of Duluth, were formally charged Tuesday with multiple felonies, including second-degree attempted murder, burglary and assault.

The crime happened around 3:30 a.m. Friday, Jan. 6 in a home on the 1200 block of West Arrowhead Road.

The home is a multi-unit rental.

Court documents say a woman and man living in the home were each stabbed multiple times when the suspects got inside looking for the acquaintance who had the phone charger.

A third victim — a woman — was struck with a glass coffee pot. The Duluth Police Department previously had reported that she was stabbed.

The conditions of the victims are serious, but the Duluth Police Department said they were non-life threatening.
