On February 7th, 2019 at approximately 2:58 pm Fort Collins Police Services received a report of a male pedestrian that was struck by a train near the intersection of W. Mulberry St. and S. Mason St.

A BNSF Railway train was traveling northbound along the railroad tracks on S. Mason St. when an adult male was struck by the locomotive. The male was pronounced deceased at the scene. His identity will be released by the Larimer County Coroner pending notification of next of kin.

Members of the Fort Collins Police Services CRASH (Collision Reconstruction and Scene Handling) Team and BNSF personnel responded to investigate the collision. Investigators do not believe speed is a factor in the case.

The train blocked roads intersecting with Mason St. from W. Magnolia St. to W. Prospect Rd. for approximately 5 hours while the incident was investigated.

Anyone with additional information should contact FCPS Officer Ken Koski at 970-416-2229.

*Man Arrested for Stabbing*

At 2:05 a.m. on February 15, 2019, Fort Collins 9-1-1 received a call regarding a stabbing in the area of Mason Street and Mountain Avenue. Officers arrived at the scene and located the victim, Curtis Bunce, 23. Bunce was transported to an area hospital for serious but non-life-threatening injuries.

Investigators determined that Bunce and a group of friends had been standing outside when an unknown male suspect reportedly approached the group and stabbed Bunce. The suspect fled the area on foot. He was later identified as Schyler King (DOB 01/27/85). King was located at home and taken into custody at approximately 3:25 a.m. He was transported to the Larimer County Jail and booked on the charge of 2nd Degree Assault (class 4 felony).

“I want to recognize the outstanding team effort that went into this case,” said FCPS Chief Jeff Swoboda. “With the help of our 911 team and local first responder partners, the victim quickly received the care he needed and officers were able to safely take the suspect into custody.”

Anyone with information, who has not already spoken to police, is asked to call Detective Chris O’Loughlin at 970-416-2571 or Crime Stoppers of Larimer County at 970-221-6868 or www.stopcriminals.org.

All charges are simply an accusation by law enforcement officers, and all arrested parties must be presumed innocent until proven guilty in court.

In just a few months, a group from FCPS will join Police Unity Tour – Team Colorado to honor fallen officers in a challenging 300-mile bicycle ride.

We often get questions from our community about how they can show support for law enforcement. The team is holding a number of public events and fundraisers over the next few months, which will support the May event.

There are two events coming up this weekend – a fundraising partnership with FireHouse Xpress Car Wash in Fort Collins and a charity concert featuring Face Vocal Band in Lafayette.

Best of luck as you continue training, Team Colorado!
