In West Highland, a restaurant customer is stabbed in a seemingly random attack


DENVER (AP) — Authorities are looking for a suspect who stabbed a customer in the neck at a Denver restaurant and fled the scene.

Police say the victim suffered severe injuries in the Tuesday afternoon attack at the Mead St. Station Bar and Grill near West 32nd Avenue and Lowell Boulevard in West Highland.

The owner of the restaurant, Paul Burke, told KMGH-TV the male victim had been sitting at the bar when the suspect walked in and immediately attacked him from behind.

He says the incident appeared to be random and that police are reviewing surveillance footage.

The suspect has been described as 6-foot-3 and 250 to 300 pounds, wearing a green shirt and khaki shorts.
