ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) -- A fight between two men lead police on a foot chase through downtown Rochester early Tuesday, and landed both men in the hospital.

Rochester police say the incident happened at about 3 a.m. Tuesday on the 300 block of 1st Avenue Southwest at the Newbridge Apartment complex.

Police say the original 911 call came in as a stabbing, however authorities don't know if anyone was actually stabbed.

When police arrived at the apartments, one victim was bleeding from the head and transported by Gold Cross to St. Marys Hospital.

The suspect, however, took off on foot and lead officers through downtown Rochester. Police finally caught and arrested 31-year-old Nicholas Greenwood on the 100 block of 4th Street Southwest.

He was treated for non-life threatening injuries and could face felony assault charges.
