A suspect in Friday's stabbing death of a Duluth man was arrested early today in St. Cloud, Minn.

St. Cloud police arrested Joshua Lee Littlewolf, 41, after officers were dispatched to the 200 block of Third Avenue Northeast on an assault complaint. There, they identified several people, including Littlewolf, who had an outstanding St. Louis County arrest warrant for second-degree murder.

Officers arrested Littlewolf, who is currently being held at the Benton County Jail.

"Littlewolf was identified as an assault suspect in the St. Cloud incident, and charges of fifth-degree assault are expected to be filed; however the investigation is ongoing in both cases," St. Cloud police Sgt. Marvin Sayre said. "Our charges are pretty minuscule compared to what Duluth has, so we are turning him right over."

Sayre didn't know specifically when Littlewolf would be returned to Duluth.

Duluth police investigators worked with St. Cloud investigators to write and execute a search warrant on the residence where Littlewolf was arrested.

Littlewolf is the third man arrested for Friday's stabbing death of Joshua Eric Olson, 28, in a downtown Duluth apartment.

Nakota James Benjamin, 37, of Duluth was arraigned Tuesday in State District Court in Duluth on a charge of intentional second-degree murder in the death of Olson, whom his family refers to as Defoe-Olson.

Another man was released from custody Tuesday but remains a "person of interest," police said.
