Fort Collins Police Investigating Saturday Morning Stabbing
Fort Collins Police are investigating a stabbing incident that occurred over the weekend.
According to a press release from the City of Fort Collins, police received a 911 call regarding a stabbing at 1220 East Stuart Street at about 12:59 a.m. on Saturday morning (Mar. 13).
The release said an adult female called 911 and told police she had been stabbed and locked herself in a room to get away from a man who was still inside the building.
When officers arrived on scene, the woman exited the residence and was transported to a nearby hospital with serious injuries.
