A Sunday evening stabbing in a Casper motel was self inflicted, police said Tuesday morning.

Police responded to the Rodeway Inn on Wyoming Boulevard at about 5:30 Sunday for a report of a stabbing. Officers found a bleeding man, who was hospitalized for non-life threatening injuries, according to police.

Police indicated Monday morning there was no immediate threat to the public, but did not provide further details.

On Tuesday, Sgt. Joey Wilhelm said the stabbing appears to have been self-inflicted and police do not anticipate making any arrests in relation to the case.

The incident was one of two self-inflicted stabbings police responded to over the weekend.

A police spokeswoman late Monday morning told the Star-Tribune the Sunday stabbing was self-inflicted. Later the same day, she retracted her statement, saying she had been referring to a separate incident that took place Saturday.

By Tuesday morning, police had determined both stabbings were self inflicted.
