Police: Man tried to stab officer with liquid-filled syringe

Investigators say a human tried to stab a North Dakota police officer with a syringe during an arrest struggle.

Court records say the incident happened in Mandan, merely west of Bismarck. Investigators say policemen approached Kelly McLeod at a gas station and tried to arrest him on a probation warrant. He took off operating but was tackled by a detective.

Authorities say McLeod tried stabbing the policeman with a syringe filled with brown liquid that he said was deadly.

Officers backed off. Researchers say McLeod fled and broke into an apartment building where he was arrested. Police say they recovered a firearm and a suitcase of heroin nearby.

KXMB reports McLeod made a court appearance Monday and bond was set at $50,000. It’s unclear if he has an attorney.
