Four people were stabbed in three separate incidents this weekend in La Plata County.
The first incident occurred early Sunday at the Alpine Inn, 3515 Main Ave.
Police learned of the incident about 1:23 a.m. when Rayford Tan, 34, of Shiprock, N.M., drove his car onto the lawn of the Smiley Building, 1309 East Third Ave.
When police contacted him, Tan had several facial lacerations and told officers he had been assaulted, according to a news release from the Durango Police Department. Officers responded to the Alpine Inn where they found David George, 52, who had been stabbed three times.
Investigators believe Tan and George inflicted the wounds on each other before separating. Both men were taken to Mercy Regional Medical Center where they were treated for their wounds.
George was arrested on a parole hold, and Tan was arrested for drunken driving. They also face assault charges stemming from the fight.
An arrest warrant has been issued for Tan because he walked away from the hospital.
A third man, Marvin Jensen Benally, 29, was in the Alpine Inn room where the fight occurred. He was unharmed, but he was arrested on a probation violation.
The second stabbing occurred about 10:05 p.m. Sunday outside the End 'O Day Motel, 350 East Eighth Ave.
In that incident, Timothy Serafini, 25, of Durango, was stabbed while arguing with another man. The suspect remained at large Monday, and police had not released a description of the man.
The third stabbing occurred three minutes later at 10:08 p.m. Sunday in the 30000 block of U.S. Highway 160, near Elmore's Corner.
The La Plata County Sheriff's Office responded to a report of a domestic dispute. Upon arriving, deputies saw a man through a window of the house brandish a large knife, according to a news release from the Sheriff's Office.
Deputies told the man to drop the knife, but he told deputies they would have to kill him.
Deputy Lance Chisum then broke a window and shocked the suspect with a Taser gun. Another deputy entered the home with his gun drawn and ordered the suspect to drop the knife, which he did.
The suspect was identified as Anthony Gunn, 32.
Chisum cut his hand while breaking the glass and needed two stitches, said Dan Bender, spokesman with the Sheriff's Office.
Deputies secured the rest of the home, and in doing so, found Joy Pahe, 28, lying on her back on a bed with a large knife protruding from her chest, according to the news release.
"It was more than just a small pocket knife," Bender said.
She was conscious and told deputies that Gunn stabbed her. Gunn and Pahe lived together as domestic partners.
Pahe was taken to Mercy, where she underwent surgery.
Gunn was being held Monday in the La Plata County Jail on $50,000 bail on suspicion of attempted murder.
