Suspect Arrested for Assaulting Delivery Driver
A suspect has been arrested for assaulting a delivery driver outside of an apartment building.
At 7:54 a.m. on May 4, 2020, Fort Collins Police responded to reports of a disturbance between two males outside an apartment in the 2600 block of Raintree Drive.
Officers determined that the suspect, Eissa Alameri (DOB 6/15/96), contacted an on-demand shopping service to have items delivered to his home. When the delivery driver arrived at the door, Alameri reportedly attacked him with a knife. The delivery driver, a 55-year-old male, was able to disarm the suspect and retreated to a safe place until officers arrived. Alameri refused to comply with responding officers, threatened them with a knife, then fled on foot and barricaded himself in a nearby stairwell. Officers were ultimately able to take him safely into custody around 8:30 a.m. The victim sustained minor injuries during the incident and was treated by medical crews at the scene.
Alameri was arrested on charges of Attempted Second Degree Murder (class 3 felony), Second Degree Assault (class 4 felony), and Menacing (class 5 felony). A booking photo is attached courtesy of the Larimer County Sheriff's Office.
"I’m thankful for quick actions of the victim and the neighbors who called 911,” said Assistant Chief John Feyen, who leads the FCPS Patrol Division. “I’m also grateful that our officers were able to de-escalate and safely end this volatile situation."
