Manhunt ends


Douglas, MN (KTTC-DT) --

The man wanted for possibly stabbing a woman multiple times is now behind bars. The Olmsted county Sheriff's Office took 30-year-old Mitchell Good into custody with guns drawn Wednesday night.

After nearly 24 hours on the run, Mitchell Good is in custody. The search for him began Tuesday night after deputies say Good stabbed a 25-year-old Rochester woman in plain sight on 65th street in Kalmar township. Nearly 40 officials were involved in the search, as well as a State Patrol helicopter. But it wasn't until a phone call around 8:30 Wednesday night that officers finally had a lead.

"911 communications unit received a call from an establishment in the village of Douglas. The call was in reference to a suspect or a subject matching the description of our suspect in the incident that occurred on 65th street," explains Olmsted county Sergeant Scott Behrns.

Authorities found Good in the Douglas Trail parking lot just a quarter mile away. With guns drawn, they were able to arrest him without incident.

"Just like rustling around... somebody in there."

Good may have also stopped in another place in the town.

"I was going to go walk to the Douglas trail, which is as you can see, 100 feet away at that, 50 feet away. And I heard some noises coming out of that side of the window right there."

Tracey Bensien lives just across the street from the Douglas trail parking lot. She says she didn't give much thought to the noise coming from the abandoned stage coach stop until Bensien returned from her walk.

"I didn't have my doors locked, which is stupid, but I was just going for a walk and my fiancé had all the food delivered. And when I got home, there were three bananas on the counter and they were gone, and all the food out of the fridge was gone," says Bensien.

Bensien says after she heard deputies were on a manhunt for Good, an uneasy feeling came over her. She is now changing out her locks and getting some safety latches for her windows.

Good will most likely be arraigned tomorrow morning. The Sheriff's office is recommending charges of attempted murder, second degree assault, and domestic assault with a firearm. Behrns says Good has some minor traffic convictions on his record, but no extensive criminal history.
