Police Charge Suspects with First Degree Attempted Murder

Released on Friday, June 21, 2024

A 36-y.o. man was stabbed multiple times last night in Old Town Fort Collins.

On June 20, 2024, at approximately 8:53 p.m., Fort Collins Police Services patrol officers were on their way to a call for service when they saw a man walking along College Avenue actively bleeding from multiple stab wounds. They immediately provided emergency care and facilitated his transport to UCHealth Medical Center of the Rockies.

Investigation into the events leading up to the stabbing revealed the victim had been in an argument with two male suspects. After the three men separated, the victim was making his way through Old Town Square when one suspect reapproached him and inflicted multiple stab wounds. Immediately following, the two suspects (later identified as Clayton Corbett, 06/05/1980 and Harley Davis 06/10/1990) fled the area together.

The following morning at approximately 6:14 a.m. patrol officers contacted the two suspects from the stabbing and took them into custody without incident. Officers from the Criminal Investigations Division and K9 Unit recovered the weapon after a brief search this afternoon.

Corbett and Davis have both been charged with:

· Class 2 Felony - Attempted Murder in the 1st Degree - Deliberation with Intent (Weapon)

· Class 3 Felony - 1st Degree Assault (Weapon)

· Class 6 Felony - Tampering with Physical Evidence (Felony Case)

“The coordination between all of our responding units led to the quick identification and apprehension of these criminals,” said Fort Collins Police Assistant Chief, Kristy Volesky. “The crime appears to be a targeted act and there is no threat to the community.”

The victim sustained serious bodily injury but is expected to fully recover. The identity of the victim will not be released at this time.

Charges are merely an accusation by law enforcement and all suspects must be presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
