Stabbing at Ft Collins Hilton Hotel

A 25-year-old Fort Collins man was hospitalized early Wednesday after he was stabbed in the back at the Hilton hotel in Fort Collins.

Fort Collins police were called at 12:02 a.m. Wednesday to the Hilton, 425 W. Prospect Road. Nicholas Fisher, 25, was the victim of a non-life-threatening knife stab wound stemming from an altercation on the fifth floor, authorities said.

Mary Pope, 19, and Brian Williams, 31, were arrested at the scene on suspicion of first-degree assault with a deadly weapon causing serious bodily injury. Their hometowns were not immediately known, though jail records indicate they are both from Colorado Springs.

Pope has several open traffic and misdemeanor court cases out of El Paso County and Williams had a class-three misdemeanor assault case out of Douglas County that was set for a March 2015 jury trial, according to court records.

Yellow crime tape remained strung around the entrance and through the lobby of the popular Midtown hotel Wednesday morning. Restoration crews dressed in bio-hazard suits scrubbed blood from the hotel elevator and lobby through the morning.

Hotel General Manager Ned Sickle said there was no interruption to guest services related to the stabbing.

Fisher was listed in fair condition at Medical Center of the Rockies late Wednesday morning, a hospital spokeswoman confirmed.

Court records indicate he has a criminal history in Larimer County, including a conviction in 2010 on a charge of possessing between 1 and 8 ounces of marijuana and a 2009 felony forgery conviction.

The relationship between Fisher and the suspects is being investigated, and details about what prompted the stabbing were not immediately released.

Williams and Pope are being held at the Larimer County Detention Center on $12,500 and $7,000 bond, respectively. Both are due in court Jan. 15.
