Sky-Hi News Staff

A person of interest is in custody on unrelated charges while authorities from the Grand County Sheriff’s Office and the Fraser/Winter Park Police Department investigate a stabbing that took place on April 2 at about 1 a.m. in Fraser.

“We conducted a search warrant at the residence where the incident occurred,” said Undersheriff Wayne Schaefer. “We gathered some stuff there for our investigation.”

Schaefer said the sheriff’s office turned evidence over to the district attorney’s office to determine whether charges will be filed.

The incident took place at an apartment at 416 County Road 834 in Fraser, according to a call log from the sheriff’s office.

The reporting party stated that the victim was intoxicated and “choking and hitting him when he grabbed a knife off of the kitchen counter and stabbed the victim in the chest,” according to the call log.

When officers arrived they found an adult male with stab wounds.

The victim was transported to a Denver area hospital, which Schaefer declined to identify. The victim was listed in serious condition as of 9 a.m. Thursday morning, April 2, according to a statement from the sheriff’s office, which also stated that a person of interest in the case was being held on unrelated charges, though Schaefer declined to identify the person or the victim.

The call log states that Ryan McCullough had been detained at the scene. McCullough was listed as being booked into the Grand County Jail at 4:48 a.m.

Grand County investigators are currently at the Denver-area hospital with the victim, and the investigation is ongoing, Schaefer said.
