MILWAUKEE - Charges were filed Monday against the man accused of stabbing a Capitol Police officer at the State Office Building, 819 N. 6th Street.
Jason Jones, 25, allegedly stabbed officer Gregory Friberg twice in the neck outside the Dept. of Revenue office, according to the criminal complaint. He faces a charge of Attempted First Degree Intentional Homicide.
Friberg and a fellow officer were responding to a Duress Alarm on the fourth floor on Wednesday, April 10.
When they arrived, the defendant mumbled as he walked toward officer Friberg. The complaint said the suspect spun around and swung at the officer twice. Both officers chased the man down the stairwell but were unable to catch him.
Friberg then realized he was badly injured and radioed for help.
Jones had visited the office in the past, police said. He was taken into custody the next day.
Jones is also accused of stabbing someone outside a West Allis Pick n Save in March.
