MANKATO, Minn. (AP) — A man arrested in a weekend attack that severely injured a former Minnesota State, Mankato, football player has been charged with two felony assault counts.
Police arrested 21-year-old Trevor Stenner Shelley of St. Peter, on Monday, hours after they released surveillance video showing a man in a red shirt running from the scene in downtown Mankato.
According to the criminal complaint filed Wednesday, witnesses identified Shelley as the man suspected of punching 24-year-old Isaac Dallas Kolstad and knocking him to the ground.
Former Minnesota quarterback Philip Nelson was charged with two similar assault counts Monday. He allegedly kicked Kolstad in the head.
The complaint says Shelley told police that he didn't hit anyone. Online court records don't list an attorney for Shelley.
Kolstad remains hospitalized in critical condition.
