Police Investigating Late-Night Stabbing


Police are investigating a late-night break in at The Heritage Apartments on North Murray Boulevard in Colorado Springs. One man was stabbed.

The man told police he was apartment sitting for a friend. Shortly before 11 p.m. Friday night a man and a woman reportedly began knocking loudly on the door. The man inside refused, and the man and woman left. 20 minutes later the man said they came back and broke down the apartment door. The man inside told police he fought with the intruders, and was stabbed during the fight. He was treated for minor injuries at the scene.

Police say the man did not know the man and woman who reportedly broke in by name, but believed they are friends of the person who lives in the apartment. They stole some stereo equipment and left in a large, dark colored sedan, where two other people were waiting.

The suspects are described as a Hispanic male, 6' 3, 165-170 lbs. The female was 5'3 160-170 lbs.

Police say they are still investigating the incident.

    Its funny how they target the hispanics and blacks for murders but the white people are the ones you read about being sex offenders selling or making drugs or break ins well thats my opinion

    Stranger on stranger crime quite rare. Perps likely looking for parties known to inhabit apartment. Dang, kids, why did tenants leave for weekend? Know that someone would come w bad intent? Way to leave your friend at risk! Bad part of town anyway. Any part of town can be un-safe. But southeast notable for personal attacks, thefts, home invasions. Lock doors, outside lights on, and DON'T answer doors. Goodness, kids, can't we all just be safe and leave each other in peace? Personal safety begins at home. If, unfortunate enough to live on south, south-east side of town, then lock doors and don't answer. Getcha dead-bolt and have CSPD on speed-dial. God Bless.

    What does the law say about using deadly force -- like a shotgun -- to protect onesself when house sitting another's property? Sounds as if this fellow may want to arm himself for future house sitting jobs.

    Colorado Springs is the new South Central LA. Nice going Greedy Old People voters who vote the way they do. Voting in Bush, Riveria, the city council members, no taxes for any city services. No wonder why this city and this country is rotting. It's rotting by the GOP initiative. Quit being so selfish with your retirement benefits and vote to have a brighter future for the youth of America. You guys never had it bad all your life, but yet your decisions over the last 60 years have ruined America. I hate baby boomers and the other old farts!
