Iowa man accused of stabbing 2 Davenport police officers
DAVENPORT, Iowa (AP) — An Iowa man is being held without bond after allegedly stabbing two Davenport police officers.
Rick Timothy Sullivan, 36, of Davenport is being held on two felony counts of assault on a police officer, the Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier reported. Sullivan also faces an aggravated misdemeanor charge of domestic abuse assault with intent or displaying a weapon related to allegations that he also threatened a woman.
The case stems from an incident that unfolded Monday when police responded to a “domestic problem” call. A woman told officers Sullivan became angry about tree cutters coming to cut down a tree, according to documents.
The woman alleges Sullivan brandished a butter knife in his hand, threatened to kill her and pushed her down.
