ROSEBUD -- A 34-year-old Rosebud man will spend more than three years in prison for hitting and stabbing his girlfriend and then spitting and kicking law officers on the Rosebud Sioux Indian Reservation last spring.

Eric Joseph Oliver was sentenced for  assault with a dangerous weapon and assaulting a federal officer earlier this week in federal court.

Last May 30, Oliver and his girlfriend got into an argument and he hit her in the face and stabbed her with a sharp instrument. She sustained two shallow stab wounds, one on her neck and the other on top of her head, said court documents.

She was able to escape and call Rosebud Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Services for assistance and was taken to the Indian Health Services Hospital in Rosebud to receive medical care.

When two officers responded to the call, Oliver kicked one of the officers twice and spat at another officer’s face.
