(COLORADO SPRINGS) — The Colorado Springs Police Department (CSPD) said a suspect was arrested after a stabbing south of downtown earlier this week.
According to CSPD, on Monday, Oct. 23 just before 2 p.m., officers were called to a stabbing on East Las Vegas Street near the intersection with South Tejon Street. When officers arrived, they found a victim with multiple stab wounds who was taken to the hospital for treatment of her injuries.
A description of the suspect was given to police and officers with the Homeless Outreach Team (HOT) recognized the description of the suspect from an earlier contact and provided a name along with a photograph.
