Charges today for suspect in stabbing
Mitchell Good drove to a secluded road behind a farm and ordered a 25-year-old woman out of the car, got her on the ground and tried to stab her with two difference knives, according to the criminal complaint filed against the 30-year-old Rochester man this morning.
Good is charged with one count of attempted first-degree murder, one count of attempted second-degree murder, two counts of making terroristic threats and one count of second-degree assault.
The complaint said the woman and her 3-year-old daughter had gone to Good’s Rochester apartment Tuesday evening after he asked her to stop by. He drove her to Kalmar Township, where he attacked her. Authorities got the call for help about 8:50 p.m.
The woman said Good is a former boyfriend.
According to the complaint, the woman said when they got in the vicinity of 65th Street Northwest and County Road 3, he drove behind a farm on a field road, stopped the car and ordered her out. She said he told her he was going to kill her, then commit suicide.
Good put his knee to her chest and had a knife in each hand and tried to stab her with both knives, the complaint said. She told police she struggled with him, trying to get the knives away. He cut her several times before she was able to run away with her daughter and called 911 from her cell phone.
She said he came back and wanted her to help him find his car keys, and she told him to stay away from her, the complaint said. She walked to 65th Street and he followed.
That's when a car stopped to help the woman. She told the driver she was hurt and he told her to get in the car, which she did. The victim, who had cuts to her head, right hand and across her left forearm, was taken to Saint Marys Hospital by Gold Cross ambulance, the complaint said.
Meanwhile, Good fled on foot, setting off a 24-hour manhunt before he was caught Wednesday evening at a parking lot in Douglas, just off the Douglas Trail. Some 40 to 45 officers scoured the area Tuesday night and Wednesday for Good.
