Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- The Duluth man accused of stabbing someone with a sword earlier this week has been charged with two counts of assault.

43 year old Kyle McClain has been charged with two felonies, 1st Degree Assault and 2nd Degree Assault.

On Monday, police were called to the Duluth Detoxification Center along East Superior Street on the report that a man had just walked in with a stab wound to his chest.

Officers followed a blood trail in the snow which led them to a residence in the 1000 block of East 3rd Street where they located three men inside.

An investigation led to the arrest of McClain who police believe was involved in the stabbing.

Authorities say a sword found at the residence may have been used by McClain and was collected as evidence.
