Two Rivers Police: Officer injured in confrontation

UPDATE: The Two Rivers Police Department have now provided updated information on the confrontation that injured an officer. 

Around 3 p.m. on Tuesday, Two Rivers police officers responded to the wooded area at the end of Davis Street off of Memorial Drive. The officers were investigating a report of possible human remains being discovered. Two people told police that they saw what they believed were infant remains inside a small camper in the woods at the end of Davis Street. 

Police found that the owner of the property, 56-year-old Raymond Mikeal, also owned several nearby properties. Officers tried to secure the properties while investigators were in the process of getting search warrants. 

Police say they were met with uncooperative family members who lied about Mikeal's whereabouts. Officers eventually found and tried to arrest Mikeal - that's when police say Mikeal fought with officers while wielding a knife. 

During the struggle, police say an officer was stabbed twice and bitten. Mikeal, along with a 17-year-old girl, were taken into custody. The injured officer was taken to the hospital and treated for non-life threatening injuries. 

Police say the remains were later found to be animal bones. 

Mikeal remains in custody at the Manitowoc County Jail. Charges will be filed by the District Attorney's Office.
