Publish date:

Police have arrested a person suspected of a fatal stabbing in St. Paul Park on Wednesday evening.

The incident happened in the parking lot at 1020 3rd Street, which is the address of the Neuvas Fronteras Spanish Immersion School, at around 7:30 p.m.

When police arrived, they found a victim who had suffered fatal stab wounds, according to the Washington County Sheriff's Office.

A few hours later, the sheriff's office said they'd made an arrest in the investigation, and the suspect is in custody at the Washington County Jail, with formal charges pending.

Details about the victim have not yet been released, with that information expected to be issued later by the Ramsey County Medical Examiner's Office.

"At this point, there is no reason for the public to be concerned for their safety," the sheriff's office said.

The Neuvas Fronteras school is moving to its new location at 1020 3rd Street this fall, undertaking a refurbishment of the existing 1950s buildings, as well as constructing a new addition that will be ready for the 2019-20 school year.

It was previously the home of the Oltman Middle School, which has moved to a new school in Cottage Grove that will open this month.
