MARATHON COUNTY – One person is dead, a second person is injured and a suspect is in custody following an April 7 stabbing in the Marathon County town of Cleveland.
Police were called at around 9 a.m. to a home off County Highway P near Stratford for a report of two people who had been stabbed. One person died at the scene, while another person was transported to a hospital for treatment. The severity of the second victim’s injuries has not been released.
The suspect in the stabbing, who was later identified as Brandon D. Noll, was involved in a crash at about 9:11 a.m. in Marshfield at East Fourth Street and Galvin Avenue, according to the Marshfield Police Department. Noll allegedly fled the scene of the crash, then stole a second vehicle from a parking lot at Quality Roofing.
The stolen vehicle was located in Spencer, which prompted a pursuit. The pursuit ended in the 400 block of West Veterans Parkway after officers used stop sticks and a PIT maneuver to disable the vehicle. Noll was taken into custody and is jailed awaiting formal charges.
Online court records show Noll, 22, lists a Spencer address and has prior felony convictions for burglary. Before living in Spencer, Noll lived at a County Highway P address, court records show.
Police confirm the public is not in danger and say the victims knew their attacker. Their names have not been released.
