HOLDEN — One person is in custody after Holden Police Department officers were dispatched about noon on Friday, April 3, to the 200 block of South Olive Street in Holden to the report of an assault with a knife.

A press release from HPD states that upon arrival, officers found a person had been stabbed with a knife during a “short altercation.”

The department states that after gathering suspect information, officers were able to narrow down to two possible locations for the suspect.

HPD states that due to past threats by the suspect, and witness statements, members of the HPD, Johnson County Sheriff’s Office and the Warrensburg Police Department worked together in surveying the two possible areas in search of the suspect.

The Joint Special Weapons and Tactics Team was called in to assist with suspect apprehension.

Due to the joint effort, HPD states one person was taken into custody, without incident.

With the assistance of the Johnson County Prosecutor’s Office, HPD was able to get a $25,000 cash-only warrant for the suspect for felony assault.

HPD states the investigation is ongoing.
