SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - The Bureau of Indian Affairs superintendent on the Crow Creek Indian Reservation has been stabbed.

Former tribal chairman Brandon Sazue says superintendent Patrick F. Duffy was attacked Wednesday at BIA headquarters in Fort Thompson.

The Capital Journal in Pierre reported (https://bit.ly/1GWqExM ) that Duffy, who lives in Fort Pierre, was eventually taken to Sanford Hospital in Sioux Falls. His condition was unknown.

The Journal also reported a suspect was arrested and taken to a regional tribal jail.

Tribal police referred calls to BIA in Aberdeen, which referred calls to Washington, which didn’t immediately return them. Current chairwoman Roxanne Sazue says she won’t comment until she gathers all the details.

Brandon Sazue says that as superintendent, Duffy oversees BIA facilities in Fort Thompson and manages tribal land.
