Los Angeles attempted murder suspect arrested in Colorado
LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- A man wanted for 13 years on attempted murder charges in Los Angeles is in custody in Colorado.
Miguel Sanchez, 59, was arrested Wednesday in Colorado Springs for urinating on a wall outside a Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant.
The Colorado Springs Police Department says Sanchez initially gave officers a false name when he was arrested. After he was fingerprinted, police discovered he had a $2 million warrant.
Sanchez allegedly stabbed a male and then a female after an argument in 2000. Investigators described the crime as domestic violence.
Prosecutors filed four felony charges against Sanchez in 2000: two counts of attempted murder, one count of aggravated mayhem and one count of assault with a deadly weapon, according to the district attorney's office.
The LAPD Fugitive Team is working on extraditing Sanchez from Colorado.
