The Fort Collins Police Department is seeking the public's help, by asking any witnesses who may have seen an attempted murder take place earlier this week, to please come forward.

Around 9 p.m. on May 15, John Henson was crossing Linden Street near the Poudre River Bridge, when police say he was purposefully struck by a vehicle. Henson sustained minor injuries, however it wasn't until the next day that police located the suspected green four-door sedan that hit him. Also on the following day, around 2:20 p.m., Fort Collins Police received a disturbance call at the Catholic Charities mission on Linden Center Drive. The report stated that Brenton Dolph (DOB 04/05/94) allegedly attempted to slash Henson, although Henson walked away uninjured. Dolph was arrested nearby without incident, and now faces charges of Aggravated Intimidation of a Victim (class 3 felony) and Attempted First Degree Assault (class 4 felony). Additional charges are still pending.
