2 people in custody in connection to Hudson fatal stabbing

Hudson police said two persons of interest were taken into custody after the suspect vehicle was located in Blaine.

Two persons of interest have been taken into custody in connection to a triple stabbing in Hudson, Wisconsin, that left a 26-year-old from Minnesota dead.

The Hudson Police Department on Sunday said officers responded to a stabbing incident around 1 a.m., where they found three people had been stabbed at three different areas of downtown Hudson. One person, identified as Cain Solheim of New Brighton, died and two others were brought to Regions Hospital in St. Paul to be treated. Their conditions aren't known.

After the stabbings, witnesses described multiple unknown suspects getting into a Chrysler Town and Country minivan with Minnesota license plates, police said. 

Police found the van believed to be connected to the stabbing in Blaine, Minnesota, on Sunday afternoon, and two persons of interest were taken into custody, Hudson police said in a news release Monday. 

Police, who have said they believe this was a targeted attack, are now working with the St. Croix County District Attorney to review charges in connection to the stabbings.

The triple-stabbing comes as Hudson sees an influx of Minnesotans visiting the city since Gov. Tim Walz's latest ban on in-person dining at bars and restaurants went into effect. The mayor of Hudson is considering a 10 p.m. curfew to limit the number of people who come to the city just to drink at a bar late at night.
