Arrest made in stabbing outside Quincy’s Bar

Quick work by the Grand Junction Police Department helped officers apprehend a suspect in a stabbing Friday night at a local bar, police said.

Dennis Wade Doyle, 24, of Whitewater, was arrested at Seventh Street and Main Street on suspicion of stabbing another man in the abdomen outside Quincy Bar at 10:30 p.m., police said.

Bond had not been set for Doyle, who faces a felony charge of second-degree assault, police said.

The identity of the stabbing victim was unavailable Saturday night, but it was believed that his injuries are not life-threatening, police said. 

Officers located Doyle after tracking down a witness to a fight between several people in an alley behind the bar in the 600 block of Main Street, police said.

Another man was assaulted in the fight, and both men were taken to St. Mary’s Hospital, Police Department Sgt. Jim Creasy said.

Officers interviewed several witnesses and gathered evidence at the scene before making an arrest, Creasy said.

Police are investigating another stabbing that occurred later Friday night near 28 1/4 Road. The victim may have sustained serious injuries, police said.

A suspect has not been identified.
