At 2:09 a.m., while on patrol in the town's downtown entertainment district, officers of the Mankato Department of Public Safety police service came across a victim of an apparent assault near the intersection of Cherry and South Front streets, police said.

Kolstad was transported to the local hospital by ambulance. A suspect was located on scene and taken into custody for probable cause assault, police said.
