Fort Collins Police Services arrested Roger Allen Brown for a stabbing that occurred in Eastside Park early Wednesday.

At 12:36 p.m. March 7, FCPS received reports of an injured adult male in the park at 100 Locust St., according to a press release from the City of Fort Collins. 


Officers located the victim, who was later transported by ambulance to an area hospital with life-threatening injuries, according to the release.

Due to its proximity to the park, Laurel Elementary was placed on a brief lockout as a precautionary measure, which included the doors being locked and no one being let in or out of the building without class activities being disrupted.

Brown was arrested on charges of attempted second-degree murder and first-degree assault. Brown has been booked into the Larimer County Detention Center. 

According to the release, there is no on-going threat to the public related to this incident. Detectives are currently working to interview anyone who might have information related to this incident. 

Anyone with information that has not already spoken has been asked to contact Detective Jaclyn Shaklee at 970-416-2771.
