SCHUYLER, Neb. (AP) - Police in the small eastern Nebraska town of Schuyler interrupted a suicide attempt and found a stabbing victim inside a nearby apartment this weekend.

The Colfax County Attorney’s office said the incident was discovered around 2:15 a.m. Sunday in Schuyler.

Officers encountered a 41-year-old man trying to hang himself from a tree outside an apartment building. They intervened by cutting the rope, and paramedics took the man to the local hospital.

Then officers went inside an apartment and found a 34-year-old woman with multiple stab wounds in her throat. The woman was conscious but couldn’t communicate. She was also rushed to the hospital.

Both the man and woman were later flown to an Omaha hospital for treatment.

Prosecutors say the man will be charged with at least two felonies.
