Grand Teton National Park rangers responded to a report of a serious assault that occurred early Friday morning, June 28, at an employee dormitory adjacent to Jackson Lake Lodge. Teton Interagency Dispatch Center received a call for assistance at 1:35 a.m.
Park rangers arrived shortly after the emergency call and arrested one suspect. The victim was provided emergency medical care on-scene and transported by park ambulance to St. John's Medical Center in Jackson, Wyoming.
This was an isolated event, and incidents such as this rarely occur in the park. All public and employee residential areas of Jackson Lake Lodge are secure at this time.
The incident is under investigation by the National Park Service. Further information will be released as it becomes available.
