PUEBLO, Colo. — A man was arrested after a stabbing early Friday morning, the Pueblo Police Department said.

Around 6 a.m., officers responded to a hospital to speak with a male stabbing victim who was being treated.

The victim, a 49-year-old man, said he was stabbed after he stopped to pick up his girlfriend at 1600 E. 14th St.

When he arrived, the man said he was attacked by 26-year-old Marcos Garcia, who stabbed him in the front and back. The man took himself to the hospital for treatment.

Garcia, who had a felony no bond warrant, was transported to the Pueblo County Detention Center where he was booked on the warrant and new charges of second-degree assault with a deadly weapon and violation of a restraining order.

The investigation is ongoing.
