Laramie County Sheriff’s Deputy Stabbed During 911 Hang-Up Investigation

An investigation is underway after a Laramie County Sheriff’s Deputy was stabbed over the weekend.  Around 2:45 Sunday morning, Deputies were dispatched to the 500 block of West Prosser #A103 for a 9-1-1 hang up call.  Deputies arrived on scene, contacting the caller who appeared to be under the influence of a controlled substance and did not have an emergency.

During the incident, Deputies asked the caller to step outside. Once outside, the caller stabbed one of the deputies in the upper shoulder and attempted to flee the area. After a brief foot pursuit, deputies caught up to the caller who resisted arrest.

While resisting, the caller went unconscious. Deputies then began life saving measures administering Narcan and CPR to the caller. Both the caller and injured deputy were transported to CRMC for medical treatment and are in stable condition.

The case has been transferred to Cheyenne Police Department for further investigation.
