Police arrested a 16-year-old from St. Cloud believed to be responsible for the death of 20-year-old Davee Moshea “Foolish” Devose.
St. Cloud Police Sergeant Jason Burke says officers responded to a knife complaint at the intersection of 6th Avenue South and 5th Street South at 1:40 a.m. Friday. Officers and Gold Cross paramedics tried to revive Devose but he died at the scene.
Burke adds the suspect was walking with three other individuals around a house when an argument broke out and led to a fight. The suspect allegedly stabbed Devose one time in the chest.
The teenager fled from the scene and officers arrested him in an alleyway near the 900 block of 5th Avenue South. Officers conducted a show up with a witness and took the 16-year-old into custody for violating curfew. The suspect later confessed he is responsible for stabbing Devose. He is facing charges of 2nd degree murder, 2nd degree assault and curfew violation.
Devose’s body was taken to Ramsey County Medical Examiner for autopsy. An investigation is still active. Police recovered a knife one and half block away from the scene.
Friends and families are remembering Devose by placing flowers and signs at the site of his death. His family started a GoFundMe account and are accepting donations.

First Responders with the Albertville Fire Department are going to have the tools to save more animal’s lives in fire emergencies.
The department is receiving an animal rescue oxygen mask kit through a donation from the Invisible Fence Company. The masks are designed to be potentially life-saving devices that will provide an animal with oxygen during an emergency.
Most states do not have the proper safety equipment to save an animal’s life. It is estimated that an average of 40,000 to 150,000 pets die in fires each year. The donation is part of a national outreach called Project Breathe.

ST. CLOUD, Minn. (AP) - A St. Cloud police officer has placed second in an international powerlifting competition in Finland.
Thirty-six-year-old Nick Tylutki was runner-up in his weight class at the International Powerlifting Federation World Championships earlier this month.
The St. Cloud Times reports it's Tylutki's best finish in nine appearances, but he says he could have taken first if he had been able to finish a 744-pound deadlift that he got up to his knees.
Tylutki worked as a software programmer before joining the St. Cloud Police Department seven years ago. He's a SWAT team operator who patrols southern St. Cloud at night. He says learning to calm his nerves during competitions has helped him in his police work.

The second swim quarry at Stearns County’s Quarry Park and Nature Preserve opened Tuesday.
County Park Director, Peter Theismann, says the new quarry is smaller and its 45-foot depth is shallower than Melrose Deep 7, which is 100 feet. It features a quieter family-oriented setting, a sandy beach and a gradual slope leading to the water.
Theismann adds there will be no lifeguards in the quarry, so people still need to be good swimmers. The area also has several picnic tables, shelter, grills, a swimming dock and an outhouse. The cost of project was $151,500.
Bernick’s donated $15,500 to the project and Department of Natural Resources gave a $136,000 Legacy amendment grant for the project.
