A McCook man is facing charges after he allegedly assaulted staff at Great Plains Health in North Platte.
At around 1:00 p.m., on September 28, officers with the North Platte Police Department responded to the Great Plains Health Behavioral Unit after receiving a report that a patient had assaulted staff members at the hospital.
Officers arrived and found staff trying to calm the suspect, 33-year-old Jessee Anderson.
It was reported that Anderson had become agitated and began choking a 34-year-old male doctor.
Police say when two male staff members attempted to intervene, Anderson stuck them multiple times and attempted to leave the facility.
After further investigation, officers took Anderson into custody and transported him to the Lincoln County Detention Center.
He’s been charged with felony assault on a health care professional, felony strangulation, two counts of 3rd-degree assault and criminal mischief.
Anderson is being held on ten percent of $100,000 bond.
