COLORADO SPRINGS — FOX21 has acquired the arrest affidavit for 31-year-old Osemeke Uwadibie, the suspect in a dramatic incident last week involving a homicide, an officer assault and stolen patrol vehicle, and how it all finally ended.

According to the arrest affidavit, just before 10 p.m. on the night of May 13, the Colorado Springs Police Department (CSPD) received a call for service at 233 East Arvada Street regarding a black man, later identified as Uwadibie, threatening the caller with a knife.

The affidavit reports Officer Brandon Lowe was first to arrive on scene, at Meadows Point Apartments on Arvada Street, where he was immediately confronted by Uwadibie, who tried to keep Officer Lowe from getting out of his patrol car. Records show Uwadibie assaulted Lowe once he managed to get out of the car, then got inside himself and drove off.

Lowe said he fired his service weapon several times as Uwadibie left the area.

Responding officers caught up to Uwadibie after he crashed the patrol car he had stolen into multiple cars on I-25. Uwadibie was taken into custody and transported to a local hospital for treatment of a gunshot wound.

Additional officers responding to Meadows Point Apartments, found a man’s body inside an apartment.

A woman in a neighboring apartment said Uwadibie broke out a living room window and entered the apartment, before going into a bedroom where a man she only knew as “Bam” was staying. McNally fled the unit to seek help. She was later shown a photo of Charles Slabaugh by a detective and she confirmed it was the man she knew to be “Bam.”

She said, during the incident, she grabbed another neighbor to help. He grabbed an axe and ran to a window of McNally’s apartment, where he he said, he witnessed the homicide.

Uwadibie broke through another window to get outside, where that neighbor was waiting – and hit Uwadibie with the flat part of his axe.

On Monday, May 16, the El Paso County Coroner’s Office conducted an autopsy on the homicide victim and confirmed his identity as 59-year-old Colorado Springs resident Charles Slabaugh. Uwadibie has been charged with first degree murder and is being held at the El Paso County Jail. Slabaugh’ s death is the 19th homicide investigation in the City of Colorado Springs in 2022. At this time last year, the CSPD investigated 17 homicides.

As a result of the multiple traffic crashes on I-25, there were four people, two adults and two juveniles, who suffered minor injuries. Charges regarding this portion of the incident are pending.
