In Fremont County Sheriff's Office reports Wednesday to Thursday morning:

- The FSO took 61 calls for service during this timeframe. County ambulances were dispatched 11 times, and area fire departments responded to three calls for help. Seven people were booked into the Fremont County Detention Center for charges including two alcohol-related charges, four felony charges and four misdemeanor charges. The center currently is responsible for 169 inmates including 150 at the facility, 12 in substance abuse treatment programs, four on home detention and three others outside of the facility.

- Ray Sisneros, 30, of Riverton, was arrested for aggravated assault and battery Thursday morning after he allegedly stabbed another man in the back.

Officials said the 47-year-old victim was taken by ambulance to Riverton Memorial Hospital, where he was in stable condition Thursday morning. The incident was reported at about 5:30 a.m. Thursday from the area of River Lane in Riverton.

"There appears to have been an altercation at a residence (there)," Undersheriff Ryan Lee said in a press release Thursday. "Sisneros is alleged to have brandished a knife and stabbed a male victim at least twice in the back."

The incident initially was listed as a suicide attempt in the Sheriff's log. According to reports, a woman called law enforcement just before 5:30 a.m. Thursday saying that her son was trying to hurt himself. The woman said she was not at the scene, but her daughter and husband reportedly were with her son.

"(The reporting party) did hear something to the effect that he was bleeding, (unknown) where from," initial reports state.

At 5:34 a.m., one person reportedly was detained, and at 5:35 a.m. the reporting party was back on the phone saying someone had been stabbed.

"We do have eye witnesses to this incident," Lee said Thursday. "The investigation is in early stages at this point, and I do not have any further information for release."
