Cheyenne Man Accused of Stabbing Girlfriend Multiple Times
KGAB has learned that the woman Anthony Brassard allegedly stabbed was his girlfriend, not his wife.
Police spokesman Officer David Inman told KGAB on Monday that Brassard and the victim were "married."
KGAB regrets the error.
Officer David Inman says police were called to Anthony Brassard's apartment in the 2500 block of Windwood Drive around 3:40 a.m. Sunday for a report of a woman yelling for help.
When officers arrived, they found Brassard's
wife girlfriend suffering from multiple stab wounds. She was taken to Cheyenne Regional Medical Center, where she remained hospitalized Monday morning.
"I don't know her condition right now, as far as prognosis, but (it) looks like she's going to make it," said Inman.
Brassard, who eventually surrendered to the SWAT team after barricading himself in his apartment, was arrested on suspicion of attempted first-degree murder.
Inman couldn't say what provoked the stabbing, and wasn't sure whether drugs or alcohol were involved.
Brassard is scheduled to make his initial appearance in Laramie County Circuit Court tomorrow, Sept. 1, at 9:45 a.m.
