Three jailed in stabbing

Jesus Alcantar, 21, of Grand Junction, Christopher Salazar, 19, of Clifton and Marc Martinez, 21, of Clifton, were arrested on a variety of charges Friday by street crimes deputies of the Mesa County Sheriff’s Office after an investigation into a reported stabbing on Sept. 14 at a home in the 500 block of 30 Road, authorities said. The 17-year-old victim was stabbed in the back after a group of men reportedly forced their way inside the home, according to an arrest warrant affidavit. The victim, who suffered a laceration to his lower left lung, told police he believed one of the suspects was angry with him for flirting with the suspect’s girlfriend on social media, the affidavit said.

Trio assaulted in home


Grand Junction police opened an investigation after three people at a home in the 900 block of Colorado Avenue were reportedly assaulted by an unknown man around midnight Saturday. When the suspect wasn’t let inside the home, he reportedly started kicking at the door, police said. A woman inside opened the door and she was grabbed and thrown to the ground, police said. The man reportedly punched two others before leaving.

Ticketed twice in two days


Bradley Sutton, 66, was ticketed Oct. 22 on suspicion of criminal mischief after a business in the 300 block of South First Street reported he was sleeping near a Dumpster in the area. Officers observed graffiti on the Dumpster, which Sutton explained he’d written because he didn’t want anyone to “throw away his stuff,” according to a summons. Police were called on a similar complaint two days later to the same location. Sutton was ticketed again on suspicion of trespassing. Bradley reportedly told the officer he thought he could sleep there, the summons said.
