BOULDER, Colo. — A woman is in custody following an incident that sent a Boulder police officer to the hospital, according to the Boulder Police Department.

Limited details were released Wednesday evening, but Boulder PD sent out more details Thursday afternoon.

Boulder police arrived at Lucky's Market on the intersection of Quince Avenue and Broadway shortly after 6:30 p.m. Wednesday after getting a call accusing a woman of trespassing and refusing to leave.

"When officers arrived, they were told the woman was acting erratically, speaking nonsensically, and that she had mud on her face," Boulder PD said in a news release Thursday.

The responding officers tried to talk with her and get her to leave the store when she pulled out a knife and stabbed one of them in the shoulder.

The suspect then lunged at the other officer with the knife, according to Boulder PD.

In a social media post, Boulder PD asked the community to avoid the 3900 block of Broadway while officers "investigate a woman with a knife inside a store."

Backup officers then arrived and helped safely take the woman into custody, the Thursday news release said.

The officer, who the woman reportedly stabbed in the shoulder with a knife, was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, according to the department.

The suspect is facing two felony counts of first-degree assault, two counts of felony menacing, one county of misdemeanor trespassing and one misdemeanor count of obstruction and resisting arrest.

Boulder police ask anyone who witnessed any part of the incident to contact Detective Tuck at or 303-441-4322.
