After a days-long search, deputies from the Delta County Sheriff's Office arrested Kenneth Alan Gallob Monday night.

Gallob was wanted by the Cedaredge Police Department for active arrest warrants on attempted murder in the second-degree. Gallob, 35, is accused of allegedly stabbing someone at a home on West Main Street in Cedaredge early Aug. 25. The individual survived.

At approximately 11:30 p.m. Monday, Sept. 2, deputies conducted a traffic stop at the Cory General Store located at 9340 Highway 95 in Cory. As a result of that stop, and with the assistance of officers from the Delta Police Department, Gallob was located and arrested without incident. He was booked at the Delta County Jail just before 2 a.m.

According to the arrest affidavit from the Delta County Combined Court, an argument regarding a borrowed vehicle caused Gallob to raise a 14-inch blade over his head and slash at the car’s owner. A neighbor attempted to use his cane to stop the attack.

On Aug. 25, Officer Mike O’Reilly was paged to a Cedaredge home for a stabbing, with the suspect still on scene. When authorities arrived, the suspect was no longer on the scene. The suspect was later identified as Gallob.

Police followed a trail of blood found on the porch, which led O’Reilly and Officer Stewart Byrge inside, where they found someone lying in a bathtub bleeding from a large cut on their shin. Blood had also soaked through the person’s shirt. Police found a large knife on a bed, which was taken as evidence.

The person had a wounded leg, defensive wounds, and a chest wound and received medical treatment, according to the affidavit.
