Roseville: Man arrested after ex-wife suffers potential exposure to toxic chemical

Roseville police arrested a man Thursday after his wife was potentially exposed to a toxic chemical in a city park, officials say.

Officers responded about 7:40 p.m. Wednesday to a report of a woman suffering a medical emergency in Central Park at 2540 Lexington Avenue, where she had brought her children for a custody visit with her ex-husband, according to a news release issued by the Roseville Police Department.

The woman was taken to a local hospital, where tests determined she may have been exposed to a toxic chemical, the news release said.

Following further investigation, police arrested the woman’s ex-husband, who was interviewed by investigators on Thursday.

“Out of an abundance of caution, the FBI Minneapolis Hazardous Evidence Response Team and the Minnesota National Guard’s 55th Civil Support Team returned to the scene and determined there is no risk to public safety in the park,” the news release said.

Investigators ask that anyone with information about the case contact the Roseville Police Department at 651-792-7008 or submit a tip online via the city’s website.
