Hibbing, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- A 44-year-old Hibbing man is recovering in the hospital after allegedly being stabbed by his wife Thursday night.

Hibbing Police responded to a call around 4 p.m. Thursday about a male in the emergency room at UMCM Hospital with a stab wound.

The victim, identified as George Joseph Amendolare Jr., was taken into surgery for his wound and remains hospitalized.

Police say Amendolare and his wife were uncooperative with investigators.

Authorities say they did gain enough information to obtain a search warrant on their home at the 1600 block of East 6th Street. They found a bloody knife and evidence at the crime scene that linked Amendolare's wife to the incident.

She was taken into custody and is currently being held at the St Louis County Jail pending formal charges of second degree assault.
