EVELETH, Minn. - A 23-year-old Eveleth man who's accused of stabbing his younger brother twice has been arrested on tentative charges of first-degree assault.
A Mesabi Daily News report ( http://bit.ly/TD9qSd) says the 20-year-old victim is hospitalized in critical condition.
Eveleth police received a report Friday afternoon of a stabbing. They say a male caller told dispatchers he had just stabbed his brother.
The caller allegedly made threats about also having a loaded gun. Police surrounded the home, and after a 30-minute standoff persuaded the suspect to give himself up.
Police say a knife was recovered but no gun.
Investigators say they're still working to understand what started the altercation.
