The Fargo Police Department confirms to WDAY Radio that 23-year-old Shawn Schwandt is in custody at the Cass County Jail in relation to the stabbing incident.

The Department says at 11:48 p.m, officers responded to calls of a stabbing in the 2400 block of 33rd avenue south. When they arrived, they spoke to the victim, who was uncooperative and eventually transferred to a local hospital for a stab wound behind their ear.
