Police: Man, Teen Arrested In Waite Park Pistol-Whip Attack

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) -- Two people are in custody after two women were pistol-whipped Friday night inside of a Waite Park apartment.

Police say the attack happened at about 9:30 p.m. inside an apartment on South 7th Street.

The women told officers they were both struck in the head with a gun by one of the suspects, and one of the women was briefly strangled.

Police and SWAT team members later raided the apartment and arrested two people: 22-year-old Allen Elgin from Waite Park, and a 17-year-old boy. A 40-year-old Minneapolis woman was taken into custody, but later released.

Authorities say the women were not seriously injured.
