RILEY COUNTY — Law enforcement authorities are investigating an attack on corrections officers in Manhattan.

Just before 6p.m. Wednesday, police accused 21-year-old Nicholas Chavez, 21, of Manhattan, who was already in custody, for interference with law enforcement and battery on a law enforcement officer, according to the Riley County Police Department activity report.

The accusations, contained in a warrant, are from an incident on July 29, where it was reported Chavez kicked two RCPD officers and interfered with them as they were detaining him.

Chavez was issued a bond of $5,000 for this warrant and remains confined.
