2 suspects arrested in stabbing death of 28-year-old man

The stabbing happened in Chisago County.

Two suspects have been arrested in the stabbing death of a 28-year-old man in Sunrise Township in Chisago County early Friday.

The Chisago County Sheriff's Office says it and officers with the North Branch Police Department responded to a home on Joywood Avenue after 2:18 a.m. on Friday, finding a man with multiple stab wounds. 

They were unable to revive the man, identified as Joshua James Kaczrowski. He was pronounced dead at the scene. 

Over the next "several hours," sheriff's deputies worked the case, getting information from witnesses and known associates, the release says.

The investigation brought deputies to a wooded area of Tower Park in North Branch, where two suspects were taken into custody shortly after 7 a.m. 

The suspects – a 23-year-old man and a 28-year-old woman – were known to the suspect, the release said. No one else is being sought in connection to the stabbing at this time.

The incident is still under investigation. No other information was released.
