Woodland Park Man Arrested For Felony Assault

On Friday evening the Stanton County Sheriff’s office responded to an assault complaint at Faith Regional Health Services in Norfolk where the victim had been taken. The investigation revealed that a male victim had been severely beaten by a relative at a Woodland Park residence. The suspect Eugene Wright Jr, 52, of Norfolk was later found by the Sheriff’s office at the Woodland Park residence and refused to cooperate and ultimately he was physically restrained and taken into custody on charges of First Degree Assault and Obstruction. He was jailed pending the posting of a $50,000.00 bond that was set by a County Judge.
