A 17-year-old St. Cloud female suffered a stab wound in her left arm and was taken to the St. Cloud Hospital following an incident at a Walmart Thursday night.

The incident occurred around 7:28 p.m. at the Walmart, located at 3601 2nd Street South in St. Cloud.


St. Cloud police report a caller stated a female had been stabbed and the suspect was still on the scene. Walmart security contained the suspect in the store and he discarded the knife prior to officers' arrival. Once police arrived on the scene, 29-year-old Christian Anthony Robert De Beche of St. Cloud, was taken into custody without incident.

The victim received treatment on the scene before being taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. The police report states she told officers she did not know the suspect or why he assaulted her.

De Beche himself refused to speak to officers.

Walmart staff elected to close the store following the incident.
