Montrose argument turns violent
A 38-year-old Montrose man is accused of stabbing a 35-year-old woman in the abdomen with a knife.
RCP say there called to the 700 block of 11th Avenue on the evening of Dec. 28.
Officers believe what began as an argument escalated into the man choking the woman and cutting her.
Police say the man also suffered what appeared to be serious self-inflicted knife wounds to his leg and arm that required medical treatment.
The man was arrested and later released on conditions. He’s expected to face a charge of assault with a weapon when he appears in court on Jan. 12.
