Pueblo police have arrested two people and are looking for a third afrer a crime spree that included three failed carjacking attempts and a pair of stabbings in Pueblo Thursday.
The first carjacking attempt happened just before 1:00 Thursday afternoon in the 3000 block of West Northern Avenue. Officers were told the men had been chased off and got into a white Dodge Neon driven by a woman and sped away.
The second attempt was about a half-hour later at a Walmart store a few blocks away. The two men failed again to get a car.
A short time after that a third attempted carjacking was reported at 10 Amherst. Police say the same two men tried to carjack two brothers who were washing their car.
One got into the car and began driving away. The owner tried to stop the car but was stabbed in the shoulder by the thief. During the scuffle the man crashed the victim’s car into the wall of one of the wash bays, and the second man began assaulting the victim’s brother and stabbed him in the chest. Both brothers suffered minor injuries.
Once again the two thieves got away in their white Dodge Neon. .
Patrol officers found the Dodge abandoned in the 1600 block of Lynwood Lane, and a witness who saw the men pointed officers to an apartment in the 1600 block of Hollywood.
Police surrounded the apartment and after a brief standoff the two men were taken into custody. They are identified as 29-year-old Alonzo Flores and 30-year-old Felipe Nevarez. Both men are from Alamosa, Colorado.
They were booked into The Pueblo county jail on three counts of Attempted Aggravated Robbery and Second Degree Burglary. The woman driving the Dodge has not been found, but officers say they know who she is.
South High School in Pueblo was on lockdown for a short time as a precaution because it's close to the car wash where third carjacking attempt happened.
