Riley County police have charged a man with attempted murder after a woman was stabbed and he then was in a standoff with police.
The woman was found injured Thursday at the Manhattan Public Library, about four blocks from where police believe she was stabbed.
Thirty-year-old Samuel Dartez of Manhattan was arrested after a four-hour standoff with police on Thursday. Police say he was pulled over in Morris County but they didn’t provide details about the standoff.
The 27-year-old victim was taken to an area hospital. Her relationship to Dartez is unclear.
No other injuries were reported.
It wasn’t immediately clear if Dartez has an attorney.
