Yesterday, Beltrami County deputies made two arrests in connection with a cross-burning incident that took place on the Bemidji-area property of a biracial family last month, and surprise! Two young white guys are allegedly responsible.
Further information about law enforcement’s investigation and the circumstances of the arrests wasn’t immediately available.
Around 12:40 a.m. on May 25, a Bemidji-area woman was sitting in her rural Northern Township home when see saw the sky seemingly catch fire. She ran outside, and there was an 8-foot-tall burning cross propped against a tree.
The woman is white, but her husband and the father of her two adult children is black.
