LONGMONT, Colo. — A pair of suspects were in custody Saturday evening after a serious stabbing in Longmont, police said.

The attack happened in the 1300 block of Sumner Street about 10:30 p.m. Friday, the Longmont Police Department said. The incident left a 34-year-old man with life-threatening injuries.

The confrontation reportedly stemmed from an argument inside an apartment, LPD said. After the argument, the victim allegedly found the two suspects vandalizing his vehicle. When he tried to stop them, he was allegedly beaten and stabbed.

The victim was badly hurt but expected to survive.

James Kramer, 30, was arrested Saturday in connection with the attack. Kramer was arrested after a citizen saw him at a King Soopers and recognized him as a suspect in the case, police said. Kramer reportedly tried to give police a false name, but was discovered when officers checked his ID.

Bradley Hofmeyer, also 30, was arrested at his home about 6:15 p.m., police said. An anonymous tip led officers to his door.
