A Minneapolis man is facing a long list of charges after police say he broke into his ex-girlfriend’s Mankato apartment Tuesday afternoon and assaulted her.
“A 911 call was received at the dispatch center,” explained Mankato Department of Public Safety Commander Dan Schisel, “And a very faint voice was being heard, of an address for a welfare check.”
Schisel said 29-year-old Jose Tarrios of Minneapolis wasn’t supposed to be anywhere near the victim because, “This female had an order for protection against an individual that she had a prior relationship with. This individual broke into her apartment and confronted her on past situations, and as a result of that, the was a physical fight that was taking place.”
The situation took an even more serious turn; Schisel said, “At some point the individual, suspect, had grabbed a knife. He made threats to the female and also started to hurt himself.”
Tarrios’ self-inflicted injuries with the knife were superficial, and Schisel said the victim had visible injuries but did not need medical treatment.
A list of preliminary charges have been requested, which Schisel said include, “Second degree assault, OFP violation, domestic assault, interference with 911, and stalking.”
