Second man arrested in connection with stabbing

The Summit County Sheriff’s Office has arrested a second man in connection with a stabbing that took place at a party in Dillon Valley on Saturday.

Officers interviewed Santiago Soriano-Rojas about the assault, which resulted in serious abdominal injuries to Sergio Lupercio.

Lupercio, 29, is listed in fair condition at St. Anthony’s Central in Denver.

Based on answers given in the interview, officers decided to obtain a search warrant for Soriano-Rojas’ house. There they found the knife they believe was used in the attack and the clothes Soriano-Rojas had allegedly worn that night. Soriano-Rojas subsequently was arrested.

Soriano-Rojas has been charged with first-degree assault, a Class 5 felony. His bond was set at $15,000.

Another man, Norberto Rueda-Soto, 20, of Wildernest, was arrested and charged with first-degree assault; his bond also was set at $15,000.
