LOS ANGELES -

A man who has been wanted in Los Angeles on attempted-murder charges for 13 years has been taken into custody in Colorado after being arrested for urinating in public.

Los Angeles police Sgt. Albert Gonzalez says Miguel Sanchez was arrested Wednesday by Colorado Springs police.

Police discovered he had a warrant related to an attempted murder in 2000. In that incident, Sanchez allegedly argued with another person, stabbed the person multiple times, then stabbed a second person, and ran away.

Gonzalez says the incident was classified as domestic violence and that one victim was male and the other female. He declined to provide more details.

Gonzalez says Sanchez is in the process of being extradited.
