Man Injured In Stabbing, Dropped Off At Hospital

The victim was dropped off at Penrose Hospital Friday evening. His driver contacted police, but refused to give substantial information. Police were unable to locate the victim until the hospital notified them that a man with a stab wound was in surgery.

At this time, police do not know what transpired leading up to the stabbing, and have no suspect information. An interview with the victim, a 30-year-old man, is forthcoming.

    @ Elzabeth-Still dont know anything about friend. However, I did hear on the news tonight that they caught 3 people in a stolen SUV involved in roberies around town. I hope this is who they have been looking for for you.

    @ Elizabeth-I understand where you are coming from & why you might suspect that they could be related. And I didn't think you were being mean at all. As this is an ongoing police investingation I can't say much. You are right about it being suspicious with one exception. You said if someone was trying to help they would have stayed. I would have to amend that by saying "any decent person who was trying to help" would be more accurate. Unfortunately the 2nd sentence of the second paragraph says it all. The person wasnt decent & he wasnt "trying to help". Maybe he was trying to cover something up. Although there really is no connection (and I can't say why) I do hope the police resolve both of our cases.

    @ friend I understand sticking up for your friends character! Even good people can do bad things when in a corner! Iv been following all the news! & I see they suspect he was dropped off in a white suv reported by krdo! & a vehicle matching that discription has been lurking around the burglary area! I was in no way tryin to be mean! Its just realy suspicious that the person who dropped your friend off was not found for questioning!& anyone who would be tryin to help would stay to make sure your friend was ok! But that wasnt the case! & It makes me question what happened that nite as well! I wish the cops luck in finding whoever is responsible!

    The man that was stabbed is a close personal friend of mine. I thought that this was a forum where people might post information. This has left his family & friends truely devestated. I realize the importance of intelligence, however, it is more important to us to find out who was involved with this crime. Elizabeth, I understand your concern. There should be no connection. I do hope they catch the burgler as well as the person responsible for taking my dear friend from us at least for a time. At this time we don't know if he will pull through.

    @ Pete All your doing is putting people down! Noone asked for yous sorry @** input! All I was trying to say is that the stabbing & the burglaries could be going hand & hand! & a White suv may be involved in these crimes! So next time you wanna put your 2 cents in, maybe you should just keep your educated mouth shut! Cause some of us actualy care & want these crimes solved! & excuse my grammer sir cause im seriously sleep deprived from all the crime in my area! & Have a Happy New Year to everyone!

    @ Deb, Rickens and Mulligan.......The latter two are absolutely correct and Deb is clueless about WHY this is important. For example, take a look at Elizabeth's comments below. I rest my case. And for Deb's edification, I AM a teacher - in college, but not English. I do, however, 'inherent' students whose writing 'abilities' are at about the 8th grade level, sometimes less. I have no clue how or why some of these students have been pushed through high school without being able to write a full sentence - and in this 'modern age,' some tend to write their work like they're doing another text. Some even believe it is perfectly fine to submit a paper with inappropriate language (I'll let you figure these words out, but all involve four letters). And furthermore to use such language in the classroom. They quickly get the clue from me that this isn't appropriate. We're creating a texting, video game-watching generation that's supposed to lead us into the next decade. It's a sad commentary on the public education system in the USA, Colorado certainly being a microcosm of that.

      Pete, I agree that our youth are off to a terrible start. I also agree, they need better teacher's to stress the importance of good English in the very early grades. Our educational system is not doing very well at focusing on this subject. I also realize that 70% of the problem begins with the parent. With that said, I feel that the constant complaining about a sentence is awfully petty. You should focus on the story! After all isn't that why you are looking at this article? Hopefully, the high intelligence levels that some of you have may be better fitted for the New York Times. My problem is with the constant pettiness. I was intelligent enough to understand the article! No, I am not clueless. I just don't nitpick everything or everyone. I am just not rude!

    New first sentence? Police are investigating a stabbing in which one man was seriously injured. I'm not a spelling Nazi but the first sentence reads like a bad Chinese to English translation.
