Just before 7 a.m. that morning, a second man, unrelated to the first incident, was found with several stab wounds near the Colorado Fallen Firefighters Memorial not far from the Lakewood Heritage Center. That person, 61-year-old Stevan Sandvick, was dead when police got to the scene.
Police have not connected the stabbings.
Detectives are looking for a white or Hispanic man in his late teens or early 20s, roughly 6 feet tall and 150 pounds, with short, black hair. When he was last seen, the suspect did not have facial hair and was wearing a black hoodie with some type of emblem on it.
