Blue Earth Man Charged After Allegedly Stabbing a Woman in the Eye

A Blue Earth man is accused of an assault that left a woman needing emergency eye surgery.


Forty year old Shawn Shumpert was charged with felony counts of assault and terroristic threats in Faribault County District Court.


A woman said Shumpert sent her a message threatening to “shank” her with a screwdriver, then came into her room and assaulted her early Tuesday morning at a Blue Earth residence.


The woman was taken to the Blue Earth hospital with a bloody and swollen eye and bruising on her neck.  She was transferred to a larger hospital for emergency surgery.
