CHEYENNE, Wyo. (PRESS RELEASE) - On Thursday, August 12 at approximately 11:00 a.m. Cheyenne Police Officers were dispatched to a report of an aggravated assault with a knife at Martin Luther King (MLK) Park.

Responding officers located the male victim, 30, a transient near the scene. He had apparently fled across the street to The Eagles Nest Bar (1101 W. Lincolnway) after sustaining a severe leg injury. American Medical Response (AMR) arrived, began treatment for the stab wound, and transported him to Cheyenne Regional Medical Center (CRMC).

The male suspect, 37, a transient was found at MLK park holding a knife. Officers attempted to communicate with the suspect, ordering him to drop the knife several times. He refused to comply, but eventually officers were able to safety de-escalate the situation. He was transported by ambulance to CRMC for treatment of injuries.

An arrest has not been made at this time due to ongoing medical evaluations.
