Stabbing at Cheyenne Park Sends Victim, Suspect to Hospital
A stabbing in west Cheyenne late Thursday morning sent two men to the hospital, police said Friday.
Public Information Officer Alex Farkas says officers were called to Martin Luther King Jr. Park around 11 a.m. for a report of an aggravated assault with a knife.
When officers arrived, they found the suspect, a 37-year-old transient, holding a knife.
"Officers attempted to communicate with the suspect, ordering him to drop the knife several times," said Farkas. "He refused to comply, but eventually officers were able to safety de-escalate the situation."
Farkas says the victim, a 30-year-old transient, was found across the street at the Eagle's Nest with a "severe leg injury."
Both men were taken to Cheyenne Regional Medical Center for treatment.
Farkas says due to ongoing medical evaluations, an arrest has not been made at this time.
