A Defense Department civilian security forces member was stabbed Thursday morning at Andersen Air Force Base while attempting to apprehend an intruder fleeing from Guam police.
Information on the unnamed security forces member's condition was not immediately available. Air Force officials said the intruder -- who was also not named -- was shot during the incident.
The fugitive was treated at a civilian hospital, Air Force officials said Thursday in a statement. Information on his condition was not available.
The incident began at approximately 7:35 p.m. Wednesday when a civilian attempted to enter the base's main gate while fleeing from Guam Police, Air Force officials wrote on Andersen's Facebook page several hours after the incident began. The intruder crashed his vehicle into emergency defensive barriers deployed by members of the 36th Security Forces Squadron following a high-speed chase. He then fled on foot.
