UNDATED (WSAU) A 25-year-old West Allis man has been arrested for the stabbing of a State Capitol police officer at the state’s office building in downtown Milwaukee. The 66-year-old officer is reported to be in stable condition at Milwaukee’s Froedtert Hospital, with non-life-threatening injuries. His name was not immediately released.
Administration spokeswoman Stephanie Marquis said the officer was stabbed in the neck around one yesterday afternoon, after he and a second officer responded to an emergency alarm on the fourth floor of the Milwaukee state office building.
The suspect reportedly confronted the two officers just before the stabbing. Authorities have not said what caused the incident – or how and where the suspect was arrested.
