Bail Reduced For Fillmore County Stabbing Suspect
Wykoff, MN (KROC-AM News) - A judge in Fillmore County today lowered bail for a Wykoff man accused of a recent stabbing outside a bar in Ostrander.
23-year-old Noah Foster is charged with second-degree attempted murder and felony assault in connection with the attack on November 20. His conditional bail was originally set at $200,000 but was reduced to $75,000 during a court appearance this morning.
Foster has been in jail since his arrest a few hours after the stabbing was reported at Susie's Roadhouse Bar and Grill. He is accused of attacking another man with a knife while they were sitting in the victim’s vehicle parked behind the business. The victim suffered six stab wounds to his upper chest and shoulder.
According to the criminal complaint, Foster and the victim were coworkers and had gone to the victim’s vehicle for a smoke break. Foster's girlfriend later told police that he suspected her of cheating on him with the stabbing victim.
After he had been stabbed, the victim told investigators he charged at Foster and both men tumbled out of the passenger side of the vehicle. The wounded man then reported that he pulled Foster's coat over his head and ran back inside the restaurant, locked the door, and called 911.
Foster is due back in court for an evidentiary hearing later this month.
