On December 3, 2020, at approximately 8:52 a.m., Larimer County Sheriff’s Office deputies were dispatched to the Baymont Inn at 3808 East Mulberry Street in Fort Collins.  The hotel clerk reported a male guest appeared in the lobby with a chest wound and said he was stabbed.  The 35-year-old adult male victim was transported to an area hospital via ambulance for treatment of his injuries and he is expected to recover.

Deputies arrived on scene quickly, but the suspect had already fled the hotel.  Deputies and investigators began their investigation and were assisted by Fort Collins Police Services (FCPS).  The suspect is a known associate of the victim and was identified as Kurt Graham (10/18/1983), a transient in the Fort Collins area.

Investigators obtained an arrest warrant for Graham and began searching for him.  Around 9:00 p.m., FCPS officers were dispatched to the Wal-Mart at 1250 East Magnolia Street regarding a man trying to open car doors in the parking lot.  The officers located the man, and he was identified as Graham.  FCPS arrested Graham and he was booked into the Larimer County Jail on the following allegations:

Attempted 2nd Degree Murder (felony 3)
1st Degree Assault (felony 3)
Unlawful Possession of a Controlled Substance (FCPS)

Bond was set at $20,000 for the two LCSO allegations.  A booking photo is attached.

LCSO is very appreciative of the assistance provided by FCPS during the initial investigation and for locating/arresting the suspect.

The investigation is ongoing and no additional information will be released at this time.

Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to call Larimer County Sheriff’s Office Investigator Steve Gates at 970-498-5169 or Crime Stoppers at 970-221-6868 where you will remain anonymous and possibly be eligible for a cash reward. 

The charges are merely an accusation and the defendant is presumed innocent until, and unless, proven guilty.
