Fort Collins man injured in self-inflicted stabbing on Howes Street

[new_royalslider id=”178″]

A Fort Collins man suffered non-life threatening wounds Wednesday afternoon after he apparently stabbed himself, Fort Collins police said.


The incident occurred at a residence at 600 Howes St., on the corner of Myrtle and Howes streets.

The former girlfriend of the victim called police, who arrived on the scene at approximately 2:30 p.m.

The male victim appeared to be in his mid-20s, FCPD Sgt. Francis Gonzales said.

The victim was responsive and transported to Poudre Valley Hospital. The police took statements from the former girlfriend, who had visible blood stains on her body and clothing. Police also called victim advocates to the scene.

“I love you guys,” said the victim to his former girlfriend and friends as he was wheeled into the ambulance.

The reason for the stabbing is unknown. Gonzales confirmed that the stabbing was self-inflicted, but not life threatening.

“Even though it wasn’t life threatening, you can obviously see she’s (the former girlfriend) pretty traumatized by it,” Gonzales said.

According to the victim’s roommate, he was not a student at Colorado State University.
