A man has been taken into custody in connection with the stabbing of a female in Belgrade, Minnesota, which sparked a standoff with police Monday.

The Stearns County Sheriff's Office provided an update to the incident that it says started at 10:10 a.m., when the Belgrade and Brooten Police Department were called to a home in the 100 block of Washburn Avenue.

A 911 caller reported receiving a picture of a female who had been stabbed, with police setting up a perimeter and contacting the people inside the property.

The injured female was released from inside following negotiations. She was taken to Paynesville Hospital with non-life threatening stab wounds.

Negotiations with the man continued until eventually he came outside and was arrested at 6 p.m. 

The investigation continues.
