Public urination ends years on the run for fugitive Miguel Sanchez, wanted for attempted murder

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - A man wanted for attempted murder in California for 13 years was arrested Wednesday in Colorado.

Officers said they were called to a business on South Academy Boulevard near the Hancock Expressway at 10:15 a.m.  Wednesday because someone was urinating outside.

Officers said when they found the suspect sitting in a car in the parking lot and the man gave them a false ID, so they had him fingerprinted.

The fingerprints revealed the man's identity as Miguel Sanchez, police said.

Sanchez is wanted in Los Angeles for an attempted murder from 13 years ago, police said. In that incident, Sanchez allegedly argued with another person, stabbed the person multiple times, then stabbed a second person, and ran away.

Los Angeles police Sgt. Albert Gonzalez says Sanchez is in the process of being extradited.

When officers in Colorado Springs went back to the business to continue their investigation, they found two people trying to steal the car Sanchez had been in.

Timothy Stubblefield was arrested on suspicion of criminal trespass and Eric Satterfield was arrested on suspicion of attempted aggravated motor vehicle theft, police said.
