MILWAUKEE (AP) -- A West Allis man is charged with injuring a Capitol police officer and another man by stabbing them in the neck.

Twenty-five-year-old Jason M. Jones was charged Monday with attempted first-degree intentional homicide and first-degree recklessly endangering safety.

Capitol police Officer Greg Friberg and his partner responded to a call Wednesday of someone creating problems in a state building in Milwaukee.

The criminal complaint says Friberg touched Jones's arm and Jones began yelling, and then stabbed Friberg twice. Both stab wounds punctured Friberg's neck to the spine.

Friberg was in stable condition the following day.

Prosecutors say an investigator later recognized Jones as the suspect who attacked another man in a parking lot in March.

Online court records did not list a defense attorney for Jones early Monday afternoon.

From our news partner WITI in Milwaukee:

MILWAUKEE (WITI) — A uniformed State Capitol Police officer was stabbed outside of the Wisconsin Department of Revenue office at a building in downtown Milwaukee on Wednesday afternoon, April 10th.
The stabbing took place around 1 p.m. at an office near 6th and Wells. Two officers responded to the building because of a duress alarm on the fourth floor. When the officers arrived, they were confronted by a man who stabbed one of the officers in the neck. The suspect fled the scene — and is NOT in custody.

The injured officer was taken to the hospital and is in stable condition. No other state employees were hurt in this incident.
The Milwaukee Police Department is leading the investigation into this stabbing. Capitol Police are assisting.

Dept. of Administration Sec. Mike Huebsch said in a statement, “We are also thinking about all of our officers who put themselves in harm’s way each day, and ask that you send your thoughts to everyone involved in this situation.”
