Mankato police investigating knife assault

Mankato police are investigating an assault that happened early Saturday morning outside of an apartment complex.

Officers were dispatched to Cottage Path at about 3:51 a.m. for a disturbance.  The incident started outside the door of a unit after five people were denied entry inside, then others joined in the altercation.
