EVELETH — Police are seeking the suspect in a Sunday morning stabbing that injured a 59-year-old man.

The Eveleth Police Department responded to a report of a stabbing at 5:02 a.m. in the 200 block of Cleveland Street. On the scene, they found the victim with multiple stab wounds. He was transported to Essentia Health in Virginia and then transferred to Essentia Health-St. Mary's Medical Center in Duluth for further treatment.

Police did not release the identity of the injured party. While the suspect in the stabbing remains at large, a news release said the assault "appears to be an isolated incident" and that police "do not believe there is any danger to the public."

The investigation remains active. Anyone with information regarding the incident is asked to contact the Eveleth Police Department at 218-744-7560.

That is the question a judge will answer with her verdict, which is expected in the coming days.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
