A man who allegedly stabbed another man with a pocketknife on Sunday had his bond set at $20,000 Tuesday in Routt County Court. He had not bonded out as of Tuesday afternoon.
Conny Gillis Mullis, 37, of Lakeland, Ga., allegedly was trying to pick a fight with the victim at the bar in the Holiday Inn on South Lincoln Avenue in Steamboat Springs, police Capt. Joel Rae said. Mullis allegedly called the victim names and asked him to go outside, but the victim refused, Rae said.
The victim then went to his hotel room, and Mullis allegedly followed him there, Rae said. Mullis eventually pulled out the knife and stabbed the victim once in the lower torso.
Rae said he could not release the name of the victim.
Mullis allegedly fled the scene after the stabbing but was found by police officers at the Days Inn, where he was staying. Mullis confessed to police officers that he stabbed the victim, Rae said, and he was arrested on suspicion of second-degree assault.
The victim reportedly was treated and released from Yampa Valley Medical Center.
