FARMINGTON — A Farmington man was arrested early Sunday morning for stabbing another man outside a bar in Durango, Colo.
Ronald Cummings, 26, is accused of stabbing Michael Ruiz, a 22-year-old from Cortez, Colo., about 2 a.m. Sunday in the parking lot of Second Avenue Sports, according to news release from Durango police.
Police said Cummings was found with a bloody, three-inch pocket knife and a baseball bat.
Witnesses told police Ruiz was leaving the Wild Horse Saloon with a group of people at closing time when Cummings confronted them and a fight quickly broke out. The witnesses told police they hadn't seen Cummings before the altercation and that he stabbed Ruiz during the fight, police said.
Ruiz was transported to Mercy Regional Medical Center where he was treated for his injuries.
Cummings was booked into the La Plata County Jail on a $25,000 bond. He has been charged with first-degree assault.
He was arrested in January in San Juan County, where he was charged with possessing stolen property.
Cummings was driving a motorcycle that had been reported stolen three months earlier. He was booked at San Juan County Adult Detention Center and was released after he posted a percentage of his $3,500 bond.
