Follow up from Monday’s Police Blotter items:
Captain Eric Murphy said Tuesday morning that the RPD has not received any calls concerning the whereabouts of one Angelo Jenkins of Arapahoe, the suspect in the violent knife slashing attack on another man over the weekend. “We haven’t gotten any calls yet, so maybe he fled the area,” Murphy said. Jenkins has been charged with attempted second degree murder in the assault, which eviscerated the victim and caused severe blood loss from multiple stabs and slashes on his body.
Police are also continuing their investigation into the circumstances in which a 66-year-old man drug a dog for some five blocks before stopping and putting the dog into his vehicle and driving off. The man was interviewed by an Animal Control Officer Monday who said afterwards that the dog had been tied to a mirror on the truck, but had gone underneath the truck to escape the heat. The man was reported to have said he forgot the dog was there and that the incident was an unfortunate mistake. An RPD officer who contacted the man ordered him to take the dog to a vet because of the nature of the dog’s injuries, which were reportedly severe. The dog is receiving medical care.
