Man stabbed in Montrose
A 25-year-old man was hospitalized Wednesday with injuries described by authorities as serious and possibly life-threatening after a suspected domestic violence incident, Montrose Police Chief Tom Chinn said.
Jeffery Parrott, 19, was booked early Wednesday at Montrose County Jail on suspicion of first-degree assault, domestic violence and underage consumption of alcohol after officers responded about 2:20 a.m. to a report of a stabbing in the 900 block of South Townsend Ave. Officers found the 25-year-old man with multiple stab wounds and determined the incident occurred at a home a block away on Spruce Drive, Chinn said.
Parrot is suspected of stabbing the 25-year-old man. Parrott’s girlfriend, 18, suffered superficial hand wounds when she tried to intervene, Chinn said.
