Durango Sheriff’s Office investigates stabbing at homeless camp

DURANGO, Colo. (KRQE) – A manhunt is underway after two people were stabbed at a homeless camp in Durango.

It happened around 3 a.m. Monday at the homeless camp on Tech Center Drive.

The La Plata County Sheriff’s Office says two victims were transported to the hospital but were later released.

Deputies believe the man responsible is 39-year-old Hernando Tsosie, and they’re asking for help locating him.

Authorities say he’s the same man who watched a little girl use the bathroom at the Durango Welcome Center.

He pleaded guilty in that case and is awaiting sentencing.
