Assault at The Mermaid; 2 men stabbed

Two men were assaulted — each stabbed in the abdomen — at The Mermaid entertainment and event center in Mounds View around 11 p.m. Dec. 30. 

According to the police report, officers responded to the business shortly after the incident occurred, finding both victims with non-life threatening stab wounds. The assailants had fled the area prior to when police arrived. 

A short time later police located three suspects. 

They arrested a 27-year-old man and a 15-year-old boy and booked them at the Ramsey County Jail with charges of second-degree assault. The third suspect, a 24-year-old man, was charged with fifth-degree assault. 

The police report listed up to 10 witnesses who were questioned by investigators. 

Because the case is still under investigation, police are not providing additional details or the cause for the fight at this time.
