Police have arrested a 15-year-old boy they say stabbed his mother today in a home near Evergreen.
Several deputies and police dogs searched door-to-door for the teenager and found him at about 4 p.m., down the street of the subdivision where the crime occurred, said Jacki Kelley, spokeswoman for the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office.
The suspect's mother was airlifted to the hospital. Police do not yet have an update on her condition, Kelley said.
At 11:45 a.m., Evergreen Fire Rescue responded to a 9-1-1 call about a stabbing at a home at 7700 Red Fox Drive in the Evergreen Meadows, Kelley said.
Officers stopped vehicles on Colorado Highway 73 and sent reverse emergency notifications to about 580 homes in the area asking residents to be on the look out for the teenager.
