Beating suspect at large


LITTLE FALLS — A man suspected of beating his ex-girlfriend was still at large Friday morning after Morrison County Sheriff’s Office deputies located the woman and conducted a search of the area where she and her vehicle were found near Little Falls.

“We don’t have any reason to believe he is in the area,” Wetzel said Friday. “Our staff is all aware. They’re keeping their eyes open.”

Wetzel said area motels and gas stations were alerted of the search on Thursday.
