Man assaulted with machete at Tanners Lake, charges say

A St. Paul man has been charged with second-degree assault with a dangerous weapon after an incident at Tanners Lake Park July 20.
Just before 11 p.m., an Oakdale police officer on patrol near Tanners Lake boat launch was flagged down by a man who said he’d been assaulted by a man wielding a large knife, according to the criminal complaint. The man had cuts on his lip and left hand.
The complaint states the officer observed another man standing next to a minivan who said his friend, 28-year-old Raymond Guzard Aaron Jr., had gotten into an argument with the victim in the parking lot and that he’d tried to “diffuse the situation.”

Helen Street senior housing project moves forward

The Helen Street senior housing project in North St. Paul is finally making strides after a series of minor delays.
At the July 2 North St. Paul city council meeting, the final plat of the Helen Street senior living development project was approved with a few small changes requested by city engineer Morgan Dawley.
The two-acre project, located on the west side of Helen Street, south of Highway 36 and just north of Seppala Boulevard, has been in the works with the city since last summer. The parcel was once occupied by Bartholmy Body & Auto Service and small, two-story homes. The last of those structures was razed last fall.
