Bradley Kruse, 57

After he spent about six days as a fugitive, police in Pueblo say they have Bradley Kruse in custody. He is accused of attacking a woman with a hammer.

Authorities say Kruse was wanted for investigation of attempted murder and assault. The first victim is identified as Euthopia King, 57, of Pueblo. She was taken to Parkview Hospital for treatment of an open skull fracture.

A second victim, 50-year-old identified only as a male, suffered a broken jaw when Kruse allegedly punched him in the face.

Police believe Kruse was staying at King's house for the four days prior to the alleged crime. He left the area before police arrived.

Sgt. Rick Lancendorfer reports that Kruse was arrested at approximately 1 a.m. Monday in the 300 block of Spring Street. The arrest was made without incident.
