A man is in serious condition after being stabbed late Monday night. Colorado Springs Police say the stabbing occurred during a dispute over a bike.

Police say the victim was riding the bike on the 3700 block of San Miguel Dr. when a black male and female approached. The suspects demanded the victim hand over the bike, then stabbed him when he refused.

The victim is in serious condition but expected to survive and recover. So far, officers say they don’t have a description of the suspects.

    Colorado has the weirdest criminals. They stabbed the guy over a bike? Sure it could have been a fancy bike, but I doubt the perps know much about the bicycle sector. I hope he makes a full recovery and the offenders are caught; but methinks there’s more to this story.

    I am appalled that once again a black perpetrator is guilty! What are we going to do here. Nick Gerts have no morals!

    Liberty is 100% correct. I ALWAYS pay attention to my surroundings. Always have-I grew up in Detroit, -by the way-I've never been in the service or worked in the public sector. My PARENTS taught all of us kids that at an early age.

    J, to clarify, at no point on this website have I ever blamed a victim for being a target. There is a vast difference though between the vigilance required of a combat soldier and the awareness that a citizen should exercise in every day life. Situational awareness means keeping your eyes up and your attention on your surroundings. One does not need to be ready for combat, but does need to keep their head out of their smartphones and whatever else and be aware of who is approaching them. An alert individual does not broadcast themself as a target, like a distracted person does.

    With so many holdups taking place on the streets now, maybe we need a "Stand your ground" law like Florida's.

    I can't place enough emphasis on situational awareness. Constant observance of your surroundings will help you avoid many bad encounters and allow you to prepare a plan for dealing with the ones that can't be avoided.

      Mr. Liberty, I agree (in principle) with much of your position. However, some people are interpreting your comments as "stay alert at all times" which is something only a soldier would be taught. Yes, we should all be aware of our surroundings, and yes we should practice situational awareness. But, when a crime occurs it is NOT the victim's fault. Agreed, many crimes could be avoided with more vigilance on the victim's part, but let there be no mistake....if someone commits a crime, it is THAT person who deserves the blame.

        Agreed and agreed. However, LT never blamed the victim. The idea here is to prevent becoming a victim. Situational awareness is all about knowing your surroundings, preparing for contingencies, and even avoiding certain places/routes when possible. The girl who gets raped and killed in a dark alley at 2am while walking around in a bikini did not ask to get raped or killed. Situational awareness would have dictated that she a-not be dressed that way in a dark alley at 2am, b-not go into a dark alley at 2am, and c-if its unavoidable, to be prepared to fight off an attack. Her father can be consoled that it wasn't her fault and she every right to be there. Nonetheless, she's gone.

    Hope the victim recovers fully. Knives kill people and we should create "knife-free zones" to prevent this from ever happening again.

        I agree. Maybe we could add a background check for anyone trying to buy knives as well.

    More than ever I am so glad I made the decision for a Concealed Carry Permit a couple months ago. I don't wonder now how a peanut brain with a knife would do against my Glock.
