MILWAUKEE - Police were called to a Milwaukee fire station early Saturday morning after a fire captain had been stabbed.
Captain Nikolaus was sleeping at the fire house Saturday morning when he heard what he thought was someone shaking his window blinds in his office. He assumed it was wind, and fell back asleep. When he awoke later, he heard the noise again and got up to close the window. He then "saw a subject... standing facing the window, moving the blinds."
Nikolaus confronted the man, who he says became combative and the two men began struggling. Nikolas yelled for help, and a lieutenant with the fire station grabbed the man, just as he allegedly stabbed the captain.
Other firemen responded and held the man down. He was later identified as Rozono Henley, 47 of Milwaukee.
He has been charged with armed burglary and battery to a law enforcement officer - use of a dangerous weapon.
