BOULDER COUNTY, Colo. — A man was arrested Friday morning after getting into an argument with a co-worker and stabbing him, the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office said.

Deputies were called to the 200 block of Lion Point about 6:20 a.m. and found Mike Crawford, 56 of Boulder, had been stabbed in the ribs.

Deputies determined Crawford was stabbed by Larry Smith, 51 of Texas, after the two got into an argument Thursday night and flared up Friday morning, the sheriff’s office said. The two were working as contractors on a construction project.

Crawford was taken to a hospital with serious bodily injuries.

Smith was booked into the Boulder County Jail and will be charged with first-degree assault, which, if convicted, carries a punishment of four to 12 years in jail and/or a $3,000 to $750,000 fine.
