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.
