Victim Stabbed In The Back After Refusing To Lend Money


A disagreement over money has left one man in the hospital.

Police say that two men were smoking marijuana at Acacia Park, on the 100 block of N. Tejon, late Saturday night. The victim was asked by his companion for money, and refused to give any. When leaving the park, the suspect stabbed the victim in the back. The victim fled the area, and has been taken to Memorial Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

The suspect has been described as a 40-year-old Hispanic man, about 5-foot-8 or 5-foot-9, wearing a grey hoodie at the time of the incident. Anyone with any information is asked to contact police, or call Crime Stoppers at 634-STOP.

    Marijuana is a factor here. They probably wouldnt have been at the park if it wasnt for the mary j.

    most people in acacia park live on the streets and struggle to get MONEY for FOOD and HOUSING as well as DRUGS and ALCOHOL. Poverty has a big impact on people mentally because struggle is all they see. Marijuana may have been involved in this situation but the money is the reason the guy got stabbed. To me it sounds like the victim may have owed the suspect money and was refused payment from the victim. My point is marijuana has nothing to do with why the man was stabbed except for the fact that they had been smoking it before the incident.

    I bet at least one of these guys was homosexual. You know how they like to go around stabbing folks in the rear. Knaw mean? Cuz it's important. Report on this stuff. Come on. Maybe it's because they were mexican. You know how they like to use knives. Let's go. Let's do this.

    Marijuana is evil and is to blame for this tragedy. Thank you KKTV for giving us the whole story, not just the one the STONERS want us to hear.

    Every1 will speculate but its pointless to have such dissent against a largely harmless medicine, illegally obtained or trafficked maryjane couldve caused the negative choices this individual made but when good natural mmj was tested in the numerous medical labs its been through and consumed by human kind, its been proven to be a healthier option than other accepted treatments for a variety of stuff, but again when you illegally obtain it and its been trafficked through networks of criminals and such, which the suspect might've done, it might've been altered or tampered with

    Marijuana had NOTHING to do with this story..people who are high don't stab one another. Obviously they were using other substances to make them become violent. Of course the news writers threw it in to try and blame pot for their actions. Typical.

    Smoking marijuana has everything to do with this story. They were high as a kite and made bad choices because of it. Obviously the Police thought there was a connection or they wouldn't have shared the information with the press.

    Good thing they weren't drinking they might have shot each other!!! It's a good thing they aren't living at Ft. carson. Then this wouldn't have been a crime :)

    They claim the two men were smoking pot and I'll give odds that they were also drinking alcohol. Of course, that's not big news around here. Alcohol is the status quo. I've been around pot smokers since the '60's, and not once have I ever seen anyone who was ONLY smoking pot become violent. Add alcohol to any situation, and there's a good chance you'll see some violence.
