UPDATE: Two men arrested in connection with Colo assault, stabbing

Two men have been arrested and charged following an investigation into a reported stabbing outside a Colo pub.

According to Story County Sheriff’s Office Captain Nicholas Lennie, 22-year-old Colin Parker Hall and 30-year-old Trevor Dean Fitz, both of Colo, have been arrested and criminally charged in connection with the alleged assault.

The incident, which is said to have occurred in the early morning hours of Friday, February 2, transpired outside The Colo Bar on Main Street.

33-year-old David Straw of Colo, the victim in the case, reportedly arrived at the bar around midnight to play pool, according to Lennie. While inside the establishment, Hall and Fitz began “acting aggressively towards [Straw]” and made threatening comments, according to Lennie.

When the bar closed, Hall and Fitz are accused of following Straw outside, eventually attacking him. According to Lennie, Straw told investigators that, while he was on the ground involved in a physical altercation with Fitz, Hall stabbed Straw in the back. Lennie also said Straw claims that he was “punched and kicked in the face until blood started to pool”, at which point the attackers left.

Straw is said to have walked around the block “a couple of times” to ensure he was not being followed, before eventually arriving home. Upon realizing how bad his injuries were, he called 911.

A press release indicates that Straw was treated for “serious injuries” at a local hospital.

Hall has been charged with Willful Injury Causing Serious Injury, a class “C” felony. Fitz faces one count of Assault with Intent to Inflict Serious Injury, an aggravated misdemeanor. The two suspects were taken into custody and transported to the Story County Jail in Nevada on Thursday. Both have since posted bond.
