Update: Court documents provide more details of triple stabbing
FARGO (KVRR/KFGO) – Fargo police have identified the suspect in the stabbing of three people as 30-year old Ashley Larson who has no permanent address.
She was arrested after a 4-hour standoff with police while she was barricaded inside a vehicle belonging to one of the victims. Larson voluntarily gave up and was arrested on three counts of aggravated assault. She was medically cleared at a hospital and taken to the Cass County Jail.
Larson is accused of stabbing two women around 12:45 p.m. Thursday. Police said prior to that attack, Larson stabbed a man she knew at a residence a short distance from the restaurant.
Court documents say the male victim suffered multiple injuries to his upper body and was heavily bleeding. Security video shows him running from his nearby apartment.
One of the female victims told police that while she was helping her elderly mother into a vehicle, a naked and bloody Larson asked for a ride and began slashing them. The woman was able to get her mother out of the vehicle before Larson barricaded herself inside.
All three victims were taken to a hospital, treated and released.
