Avon PD Identifies Suspect in Early Morning Stabbing Incident

Avon, CO – Today, at approximately 9:53 a.m., Andrew Young, Jr., 18, of Avon, was taken into custody by Avon police officers and Eagle County Sheriff’s deputies, without incident, in Avon. The investigation into a stabbing incident that occurred early this morning along the Eagle Valley Trail near the Westin Riverfront Resort in Avon, led officers to Young in Avon. Young allegedly stabbed a female jogger multiple times before fleeing the scene. The victim is in stable condition and continues to be under medical care.

Young is currently in custody at the Eagle County Detention Facility on a no-bond hold. At this time, he has been charged with criminal attempt-murder in the first degree, first degree assault and felony menacing. Avon PD will not be releasing a photograph of the suspect at this time as it is part of the ongoing criminal investigation. Avon police are not looking for any other suspects or persons of interest. However, this is an ongoing investigation.

Avon PD would like to thank its law enforcement and first responder partners, including the Eagle County Sheriff’s Office, Eagle River Fire Protection District, Eagle County Paramedic Services, Vail Public Safety Communications Center, the community at large for their response and support, and, finally, to the two individuals who rendered immediate lifesaving aid to the victim.
