The department will forward reports to the Rock County District Attorney's Office, he said.
Police responded at 3:49 a.m. Sunday to a report of injured people at 162 S. Cherry St.
Nathan L. Kropp, 30, is accused of cutting his neck with a razor blade after hearing voices in his head and then cutting the necks of his girlfriend and their 4-year-old child.
The three were taken to Mercy Hospital for treatment. The girlfriend and the child have been released from the hospital, Sukus said.
Kropp was arrested on a tentative charge of recklessly endangering safety with a domestic-violence enhancer.
No charges have been filed pending a mental evaluation, Lt. Timothy Hiers said.
