The Grand Junction Police Department is investigating a stabbing that took place in front of a home in the 400 block of Melody Ln today.
Witnesses told police they saw 29-year-old Victor Green attack his father with a knife and heard him threaten to kill his father. Officers observed several wounds to the father’s hands and a cut on his side that went through the clothing.
The father said Green confronted him in the driveway and started yelling at him. He told Green to leave at which point Green pulled out a large knife and cut him. The father tackled Green and held him on the ground until officers arrived. The father said Green had threatened to kill him on the previous night for not giving him money.
Both men were taken to the hospital. Victor was later released and officers booked him into jail, charged with criminal attempt to commit first degree murder, first degree assault with injury, and violation of a protection order. The protection order prohibited Victor from possessing a weapon.
