Cody man arrested after Wednesday stabbing

A Cody man has been arrested in connection with a Wednesday evening stabbing on E Avenue.

Jason Johnson, 46, is being held in the Park County Detention Center on suspicion of felony aggravated assault and misdemeanor breach of peace, Cody Police Chief Perry Rockvam said in a Thursday news release.

Rockvam said that around 7 p.m. Wednesday, police were dispatched to a report of a man  later determined to be Johnson  who was "yelling and screaming and attacking furniture with a knife."

Responding officers found Johnson and several other people outside the home. Inside, they found the 54-year-old homeowner lying on a bed with a stab wound to his chest, Rockvam said.

An ambulance took the man to West Park Hospital, while Johnson was arrested, Rockvam said.

Johnson is expected to make his first appearance in Park County Circuit Court Friday morning.
