Family Fight Ends In Stabbing

A man was hospitalized after being stabbed in the chest early this morning.

Pueblo police said Francisco Rios, 26, was taken to the hospital with a punctured lung. He is expected to recover.

The incident happened around 2:30 a.m. at the Bethlehem Apartments located at the 1900 block of W. 12th. Street.

Police said Rios told them he had been stabbed by a family member, later identified as Eric Montour, 24.

Police said they do not know what Rios and Montour were fighting about before the reported stabbing.

Montour was arrested without incident and taken to the Pueblo County Jail. Charges are pending.

Rios will reportedly be booked into jail on a $1,000 warrant after he is released from the hospital.
