MSU Assault Court Appearance 19 Nov 12

An MSU-Mankato student accused of assaulting another student with a knife last week made his first appearance in court on Friday. 19-year-old Kevin Joseph Renquist was charged with felony 2nd-degree assault and terroristic threats in Blue Earth County Court for the incident, which occurred Wednesday night in a library bathroom at MSU. Renquist allegedly came up behind the victim, who reportedly lost a tooth from biting Renquist while defending himself. Nearby students were then able to subdue Renquist until police arrived. His bail had been been set at $50,000 with conditions or $100,000 without, and his next appearance in court is scheduled for December 6th.
