Police seek suspect in early-morning knife attack

Grand Junction police Thursday were looking for a man suspected of stabbing two people in an early-morning incident involving two vehicles.

Richard Dominick, 28, and Nichole Macelhaney, 29, suffered non-life-threatening injuries and were among four people inside a car involved in the incident, which was reported around 1:40 a.m. at Seventh Street and Riverside Parkway, police spokeswoman Kate Porras said.

Porras said someone inside the car phoned 911 because of concerns about the welfare of a woman driving a second car. The two cars eventually stopped, and a man who was passenger in the second car got out and allegedly used a knife to slash at the occupants of the first car, hitting Dominick and Macelhaney, Porras said.

The suspect and the victims know each other, Porras said.

The suspect likely will face four counts of felony menacing, among other charges, Porras said.
