Longmont police are asking for help tracking down a man they think participated in a fight involving guns and an ax.

Dion Martinez, 21, is thought to be hiding in Denver after the Aug. 27 fight near Ninth Avenue and Gay Street, police Cmdr. Tim Lewis said.

Along with Travis Jensen, 24, who was arrested shortly after the incident, Martinez is accused of confronting two other men at about 1:20 a.m. after an all-day text-message fight.

According to Lewis, Jensen and Martinez drove to a house where the victims were, and shouted threats. The victims said the men appeared to be armed.

Jensen then picked up an ax from the back yard and began “chopping at the side of the house,” before a fistfight broke out, Lewis said. No one was injured.

“There were some fisticuffs, but no one was hit by the ax and no one was shot,” said Lewis.

The noise prompted a neighbor to call 911. Both suspects ran away, but Jensen was tracked by police dogs and arrested on suspicion of several charges, including felony menacing.

Police found an airsoft pellet gun on the scene, and a victim reported seeing another gun on Martinez.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Northern Colorado Crime Stoppers at 1-800-444-3776, 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or www.crimeshurt.com. Information that leads to an arrest and the filing of charges could result in a $1,000 reward.
