BEMIDJI — A Deer River woman has been arrested after allegedly stabbing a Bemidji woman Sunday evening on the Mississippi River near Bemidji.
According to a release from the Beltrami County Sheriff's Office, at approximately 6:29 p.m. June 19, deputies were dispatched to an assault that occurred on the Mississippi River between Power Dam Road NE and Roosevelt Road SE, about six miles east of Bemidji in Frohn Township.
Two groups of people were tubing down the Mississippi River when they stopped at a shallow spot in the river. The two groups, comprised of approximately 25 people, got into an argument that led to a large fight, the release said.
During the fight, the sheriff's office says, Alleyah Marie Goodman, 20, of Deer River, stabbed Raquel Karen-Holly Kornezos, 21, of Bemidji, in the arm.
The groups then separated and called law enforcement, which made contact with Kornezos at the Mississippi River Bridge on Roosevelt Road SE. They provided aid and Bemidji Ambulance transported her to the Sanford Bemidji Medical Center for medical treatment, the release added.
A short time later, law enforcement located Goodman and arrested her without incident. Goodman was booked into the Beltrami County Jail for second-degree assault and minor consumption, the release said.
The Leech Lake Police Department, Minnesota State Patrol, Bemidji Police Department, Bemidji Ambulance and North Country First Responders assisted the Beltrami County Sheriff’s Office at the scene.
