COLORADO SPRINGS – Colorado Springs Police are looking for an armed and dangerous suspect after a man was found with serious injuries Thursday night.

Police said they’re looking for 27-year-old Jimmy Lee Neill. Neill is described as a 5’7 white man weighing about 155 pounds with brown hair and hazel eyes.

Police said Neill has “obvious” face and neck tattoos.

Police said Neill is wanted for a violent stabbing that happened at Dorchester Park a little after 11 p.m. Thursday. The victim was stabbed several times including at least once in the neck. The victim survived the attack with what police described as “critical” injuries.

Colorado Springs Police said they’re still investigating whether Neill is the suspect in a fatal stabbing that happened several hours later in the 200 block of E. Las Vegas Street.

No victims in either stabbing have been identified.
