ARAPAHOE MAN SENTENCED FOR ASSAULT WITH A DANGEROUS WEAPON

Acting United States Attorney Nicholas Vassallo announced today that ELVIN WAYNE MCCLAIN, 30, of Arapahoe, Wyoming, was sentenced on August 18, 2022, for assault with a dangerous weapon with intent to do bodily harm. United States District Court Judge Nancy D. Freudenthal sentenced McClain to 36 months’ imprisonment and three years of supervised release, and ordered him to pay a $100 special assessment.

On December 12, 2021, McClain’s vehicle pulled up to Sage West Hospital in Riverton, Wyoming. The victim exited the passenger side of the vehicle and limped into the emergency room, while McClain’s vehicle fled the area. The victim was treated for multiple stab wounds to the left leg. The injuries were the result of McClain stabbing the victim multiple times with a kitchen knife while driving across the Wind River Indian Reservation. 

This crime was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Assistant United States Attorney Michael J. Elmore prosecuted the case.
