Police were sent to Salina Regional Health Center after a female patient allegedly assaulted a security officer.

Police Sergeant Kyle Tonniges tells KSAL News that on Friday morning around 9am, 32-year-old Brittany Hansen of Abilene was taken into custody after she injured a security staff member.

Police say Hansen had picked up an aluminum can that was crushed and torn in half and was using a sharp edge to harm herself. When security intervened she slashed the staff member’s hand.

Hansen is now facing a charge of aggravated battery.
