A stabbing incident occurred Sunday afternoon during the Pine Mountain Ski Jumping tournaments, resulting in the arrest of a 74-year-old Norway man.
During the last day of the ski jumping competitions, an alleged stabbing incident took place around noon. Authorities reported that two Dickinson County Sheriff's deputies were patrolling the event when the suspect, identified as Andrew Bray, approached them from behind and stabbed on of them in the back. According to the sheriff's department, the deputies were able to knock the knife out of the suspect's hand and he was taken into custody.
