Just past 2 a.m. Monday, Nov. 30, Stearns County Deputies were dispatched to an assault involving a knife at 13773 County Road 7, South Haven (Fairhaven Township). Deputies found a 22-year-old South Haven man with an abdominal knife wound. The suspect, Josh Duncan, age 33 of Kimball, had left the scene before deputies arrived. Duncan was later located in the city of Kimball. He was arrested and is being held in the Stearns County jail on felony charges of second-degree assault. Duncan was jailed for two months in 2002 on several charges.
The victim was treated at the scene by South Haven Rescue and taken to the St. Cloud Hospital by Gold Cross Ambulance. Wright County Deputies and a Kimball Police officer assisted Stearns County Deputies on this call.
