A man from Lakeland, Ga., was arrested on suspicion of stabbing another man Sunday night.
Conny Gillis Mullins, 37, and the victim allegedly began fighting at the bar in the Holiday Inn on South Lincoln Avenue in Steamboat Springs on Sunday night, Steamboat Springs police Officer Jerry Stabile said.
The altercation escalated, and Mullins allegedly pulled out a small knife. He reportedly stabbed the victim once in the lower torso, Stabile said.
Mullins then allegedly fled the scene, and police were called to the hotel at about 7:43 p.m.
Stabile would not release the name of the victim but said the man is in his mid-30s and is a Routt County resident. He had no relation to Mullins besides that both were in the same place at the same time.
The victim was treated and released from Yampa Valley Medical Center, Stabile said.
Mullins was located by police officers at Days Inn, where he had been staying, and he was taken into custody.
Mullins is being held at Routt County Jail on suspicion of second-degree assault. His bond will be set today.
