Man protecting his wife is beaten unconscious at Minnesota State Fair, charges say

ST. PAUL — Two St. Paul men have been charged in a Monday night, Sept. 6, assault at the State Fair that left a woman bruised and her husband unconscious.

Justin Theodore Morgan, 18, and Marquise Donta Brown, 21, were charged Wednesday, Sept. 8, in Ramsey County District Court with third-degree assault.

According to the criminal complaint, Ramsey County sheriff’s deputies responded to a reported assault around 10:50 p.m. Monday at Carnes Avenue, near Sweet Martha’s cookie stand. They found a large group surrounding an apparent fight and a 24-year-old man lying unconscious in the street.

A 22-year-old woman told the deputies the man was her husband. She said she had watched two women steal another man’s wallet near the cookie stand and had followed them, telling the women to give the wallet back.

The two women then attacked the 22-year-old woman and her sister-in-law, the complaint states. When her husband intervened to protect them, Morgan and Brown jumped in and assaulted him, the complaint states.
