A man was stabbed to death Friday morning in a northeast Minneapolis home by a man known to the couple and who was captured later in the day in Wisconsin, police said.

The stabbing occurred about 7:40 a.m. in the 1800 block of NE. Arthur Street, said police spokesman Garrett Parten.

A frantic caller to 911 said that "a known suspect tried to break into their side door" while the residents were sleeping, Parten said.

Police were told that the woman, in her 30s, had a protection order against the suspect, which had yet to be served, Parten said.

The stabbing victim, also in his 30s, died at the scene, the spokesman said. His identity has yet to be released.

The suspect, who was gone by the time police arrived, was identified by Parten as 31-year-old Franklin T. White, of Ohio. Police issued an advisory for the public to be on the lookout for White before he was arrested over the border by the Wisconsin State Patrol.

As of late Friday afternoon, White was in custody in Mauston, Wis., about 200 miles from Minneapolis, according to the Juneau County jail log.

Cedric Alexander, who was sworn in this week as the Minneapolis' first community safety commissioner, issued a statement after White's apprehension that read, "Thanks to the Minneapolis Police Gun Investigation Unit, the Minneapolis Police Homicide Unit, and the Wisconsin State Patrol for their expedient, quick, professional, and collaborative work which resulted in the successful arrest of Franklin White."

There have been 59 homicides in Minneapolis so far this year, according to a Star Tribune database, compared with 62 in the city at this time last year.

The stabbing occurred about a half-block from a major retail area known as the Quarry.
