Man arrested in stabbing

Matthew R. Williford, 27, 833 Logan Street, was arrested early Tuesday on suspicion of first-degree assault in heat of passion, after deputies responded to a report of a man who told 911 dispatchers he said he’d been stabbed in the neck, although he said he didn’t know who did it, according to an arrest affidavit.

The man’s injuries were not life-threatening.

A heavily redacted version of the affidavit released by the Mesa County Sheriff’s Department suggested alcohol may have played a role in a dispute between the men.

Woman, 22, cited twice


Brittany K. Tevis, 22, 2680 B 1/2 Road, was issued a summons on suspicion of third-degree assault and obstructing a peace officer after an alleged brawl in which Tevis’ boyfriend allegedly assaulted another woman with a stun gun. Police investigating the same incident issued Tevis another summons on suspicion of false reporting when officers contacted her several hours later at an Orchard Mesa apartment.
