COVID-19 Early Release: Windsor PD Pursuing Strangulation Suspect
A man who was let out of Weld County Jail early because of COVID-19 concerns is now wanted by the Windsor Police Department for an alleged attack and strangulation of a woman.
The Windsor Police department is searching for Christopher A. Vecchiarelli, 36, after a woman says he attacked her, breaking her arm and leaving bruises all over her body, according to CBS 4. The Windsor Police were called two days after the incident after a friend of the victim convinced her to report the crime.
Vecchiarelli only served 48 days of his sentence in the Weld County Jail before being released due to COVID-19 concerns.
According to CBS 4, Vecchaiarelli has quite the record:
Court records show Vecchiarelli was arrested on Sept. 2, 2018 for driving a motorcycle while impaired, with a minor riding without a helmet. He was sentenced to two years in jail for the DUI and child abuse case, with the second year being deferred and dismissed upon completion of a three year probation. Court documents show Vecchiarelli was originally to serve at least 60 days “straight time,” before qualifying for a work release program.
If you have any information on the whereabouts of Mr. Vecchiarelli, contact the Windsor Police Department at (970) 674-6400.
