MSU Student Stabbing Guilty Plea 03 Apr 13

A former MSU-Mankato student accused of assaulting another student with a knife last year pleaded guilty to felony 2nd-degree assault in court on Monday. 20-year-old Kevin Joseph Renquist was charged with assault and terroristic threats for the incident, which occurred in a library bathroom at MSU in November. Renquist is said to have come 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. Renquist told authorities he was “just trying to scare the kid.” His sentencing is set to take place on June 3rd.
