MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – A Minneapolis man has been charged for allegedly attacking a group of women with a knife in the elevator of a downtown parking ramp.

According to the Hennepin County Attorney's Office, 45-year-old Benjamin Love was charged with first degree assault and three counts of aggravated robbery.

The criminal complaint states police found three women tending to a fourth lying on the floor of a car in Ramp B just before 1 a.m. Sunday. The woman on the floor had a cut on her chest.
