WELD COUNTY, Colo. -- A Weld County sheriff's deputy and a Frederick Police Department officer were injured after being attacked by a woman as they tried to take her into custody during a domestic incident on Saturday morning, the Weld County Sheriff's Office said.

A deputy was dispatched to the Meadowvale subdivision north of Highway 119 and Weld County Road 5 1/2 about 11:20 a.m. on a report of a woman threatening family members with a knife, the sheriff's office said.

A Frederick police officer helped the deputy, who told the woman, later identified as 29-year-old Kristin Lipsky, several times to show her hands and to come out of the home.

The sheriff's office said Lipsky refused and the deputy used a stun gun on her to minimal effect.

As the deputy and the officer tried to take Lipsky into custody, she made "multiple stabbing motions at (the) head and neck area of the deputy," the sheriff's office said.

The deputy and the officer were injured but were able to take Lipsky into custody without using a higher degree of force, the sheriff's office said.

A search of the home found drug paraphernalia consistent with methamphetamine, the sheriff's office said.

The deputy suffered a 1 1/2-inch laceration to the left side of his head, puncture wounds to his neck and arm, and was bitten on his left forearm. He was taken to North Colorado Medical Center for treatment and was released.

The officer suffered minor injuries. He was treated at the scene and released.

Lipsky was taken to North Colorado Medical Center to be treated for a cut finger then was transported to the Weld County Jail.

She has been charged with three counts of felony menacing, first-degree assault, possession of a schedule 2 substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Anyone with information is asked to call the sheriff's office at 970-356-4015 or Northern Colorado Crime Stoppers at 800-222-8477.
