Douglas County MP injured in trespassing incident at youth center

OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) – Deputies from the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office were sent to Uta Halee Academy on Saturday afternoon over an incident with an intruder who allegedly tried to stab people.

Authorities said a single deputy was the first to arrive around 2 p.m. at the campus on the northern outskirts of the city. Reports said the deputy located the suspect behind the wheel of a car and attempted to stop him after she drove her car into the courtyard of an academy.

As she tried to arrest the suspect, authorities said she refused orders and threw white powder and a glass jar at the deputy. DCSO believed the powder to be salt.

Reports said the glass jar hit the MP in the forehead, causing him injuries. DCSO says the deputy was able to get the suspect to the ground. At that time, another deputy and Omaha police officers arrived and provided assistance.

The deputy was taken to hospital for treatment for a cut to his forehead. The suspect was also taken to hospital where she was medically cleared to book.

Documents revealed that before the deputies arrived, the suspect was attempting to stab a mailman with a piece of glass. The suspect only caused minor red marks on the carrier thanks to a thick coat.

The suspect was arrested for second degree assault, second degree assault of an officer, third degree assault of an officer, trespassing and criminal mischief. His name and age were not disclosed.
