LONGMONT, Colo. (CBS4) – A 15-year-old boy has been arrested in a deadly stabbing in Longmont.
Police were called to 2450 Airport Road at 6:12 p.m. Saturday and found an injured woman.
Neighbor Michael Brown told CBS4 he heard several “thuds” outside and found the woman lying on the pavement right outside his door.
Brown said he called 911 and was applying pressure to the stab wound on her chest but a man in full motorcycle gear came at him with a knife.
Brown said he ran back into his apartment and locked the door to protect himself and his 8-month-old son who was inside.
The woman was transported to Longmont United Hospital but doctors couldn’t save her.
Brown said he new the woman only “in passing” but believes she was in her 20s.
Another neighbor left two flowers at the scene.
A 15-year-old boy from Lakewood left the scene before officers got there, according to Matthew Cage with the Longmont Police Department.
The teen was arrested a few hours later, at about 1 a.m. Sunday, in Lakewood, Cage said.
The teen now faces first degree murder charges.
“The Longmont Police Department officers their thoughts and prayers to the family and friends of the victim,” the department said in a statement.
There’s no word on the suspect’s connection to the victim or a possible motive for the stabbing.
