A woman accused of stabbing her father and shooting her mother in Rapid City, South Dakota, is believed to be hiding out in Colorado Springs. Both parents survived, but her father is hospitalized in critical condition.
Rapid City Police report that Bruce Eleeson was found stabbed and bleeding in front of his home Tuesday afternoon. About 15 minutes later, Cindy Eleeson arrived at the hospital with a bullet wound. She had driven herself to the hospital. Police in Rapid City believe that Casey Eleeson, 22, is responsible for both attacks. In addition, a woman matching Casey's description robbed a casino worker at gunpoint later that night.
Colorado Springs Police report that Eleeson may have come to Colorado Springs in a stolen vehicle. Her boyfriend, Seth Michael Ebert, 34, lives in Colorado Springs. The stolen vehicle was found in Colorado Springs Wednesday, in the vicinity of the Aztec Motel on Platte Ave. A tactical unit (SWAT team) searched one of the rooms but it was empty.
Ebert is not a suspect in the Rapid City attacks, but he is wanted on a warrant in Colorado Springs.
If you have any information on Eleeson or Ebert, contact the police department at 444-7000.
