Cops look for girl’s stabbing suspects

Montrose police are seeking two or more people who can help them learn who stabbed a 14-year-old girl in the shoulder after she answered a knock at her door this week.

The attack on the girl took place about 5 a.m. Monday at the girl’s home, police said.

“It was a totally unprovoked attack,” Cmdr. Gene Lillard said. “We have no idea of motive.”

The girl was treated at Montrose Memorial Hospital for a stab wound to the shoulder and was released, Lillard said.

There was a group of people at the door, but investigators haven’t determined how many people were outside the door or exactly what happened after the girl opened the door and stepped out.

The girl did provide officials with the “street name” of one of the people outside the door, but she had no other information that would help investigators locate him, Lillard said.

“We’re working diligently and trying to round up persons of interest,” he said.

The incident has no connection to the January attack on a Montrose High School student outside the school, he said.

Anyone with information about the attack is asked to contact police at 252-5200.
