Shively man arrested for seriously cutting 2 people with a knife

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Shively man is behind bars for seriously cutting two people with a knife. 

An arrest warrant states Jacob Rivera cut a man who was trying to get him out of a shed.

When a woman intervened, Rivera allegedly cut her in the back too. 

Police say the woman was bleeding profusely, had two broken ribs and a collapsed lung. 

The male victim was also disabled by his injuries. 

Rivera is charged with second degree assault. His bond is set at $50,000.

UPDATE FROM OCT. 10, 2017: Online court records show a judge dismissed the assault charge against Rivera at an arraignment court hearing in Louisville on October 9, 2017. Metro Corrections then released Rivera from custody. Records say the judge dismissed the charge "without prejudice," meaning prosecutors could charge Rivera at a later date. Records do not state the reason for the dismissal, other than to say it was "per info. from Shively PD."

Shively police spokesman Lt. Col. Josh Myers told WDRB News the case remains under investigation.
