(Riverton, Wyo.) – The Fremont County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the report of a stabbing off East Monroe Avenue near the Cozy Court trailer park area. The report of the stabbing came in to law enforcement shortly before 2 p.m. Riverton Police assisted.
Based on traffic heard on County10.com’s scanner, the stabbing victim had a wound to the chest and was “breathing shallow and not quick” while EMS was en route. Undersheriff Ryan Lee confirmed the wound information, saying the victim was an adult male. He was transported to Riverton Memorial Hospital.
Officers reportedly were searching a junk yard and vacant buildings in the area for roughly 20 minutes before the male suspect was located. The man was described as having long hair and wearing a white shirt and blue jeans.
The suspect, whose name was not yet released, is being held on one charge of aggravated assault. “There could be other charges possible,” Lee said.
