Police: Manhattan man arrested in stabbing

MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — Riley County police have charged a man with attempted murder after a woman was stabbed and he then was in a standoff with police.

The woman was found injured Thursday at the Manhattan Public Library, about four blocks from where police believe she was stabbed.

Thirty-year-old Samuel Dartez of Manhattan was arrested after a four-hour standoff with police on Thursday. Police say he was pulled over in Morris County but they didn’t provide details about the standoff.

The 27-year-old victim was taken to an area hospital. Her relationship to Dartez is unclear.

No other injuries were reported.

It wasn’t immediately clear if Dartez has an attorney.
