The Sherburne County Sheriff’s Office arrested a Zimmerman man, 22, for second degree assault on April 21.
According to Sheriff Joel Brott, at approximately 1:22 a.m. that day the sheriff’s office received a call of a stabbing at a residence in the 26300 block of Fourth Street West in Zimmerman. Upon arrival at the residence, deputies found the victim to be injured and bleeding. The victim was later transported by ambulance to Fairview Northland Medical Center in Princeton.
Investigators from the Criminal Investigative Unit (CID) learned through statements from witnesses that there was a party at the residence and an argument erupted between assailant and the victim. It is alleged by the witnesses that the assailant stabbed the victim twice with the knife, once in the arm and once in the leg. He was taken into custody and awaits arraignment. The victim was treated and released from the hospital.
Grass fire contained
Elk River police and fire were called to the 800 block of Line Avenue on the afternoon of April 19 on a report of a small grass fire.
The reporting party called the Star News afterward to report the police, fire and a neighbor worked together to extinguish the fire. “It was so good to see that,” the woman said. “It could have turned into something much worse without them.”

Woman in domestic had been in crash
Officers responded to a verbal domestic in the 12900 block of 195th Avenue about 4 p.m. April 16. They learned that the 43-year-old Elk River homeowner had been in an accident earlier in Otsego and was impaired. Further investigation led to her arrest for felony DWI. Her vehicle was located within Elk River, Kluntz reported.
Stolen Bobcat found
The owner of a stolen Bobcat got it back after he spotted the machine on a trailer at the intersection of Twin Lakes Road and Viking Boulevard. He had driven past it on the way to work at an abandoned property in the 18900 block of Cleveland Street on April 15. When he realized the trailer had been taken, he backtracked, Kluntz reported.
Collins Brothers Towing retrieved the trailer for safekeeping. It is unknown at this time if the trailer is stolen. The recovered Bobcat, however, is in the hands of the owner. A generator remains missing.
