One man was arrested after allegedly using a rock and stick Thursday to attack another man who was target shooting near Buena Vista in Chaffee County.

The alleged attack took place Thursday around 3:30 p.m. in the area of Midland Trail along County Road 304. The man said he was forced to take all of his clothing off.

While the suspect fled the scene shortly before officers arrived, information helped officers identify a suspect as Thomas Labosky, 35, of the Denver area. Police were able to locate the suspect as he fled toward County Road 315 and the suspect was taken into custody.

Labosky faces charges attempted first-degree murder, second-degree assault, unlawful sexual conduct, felony menacing, false imprisonment and harassment.

The victim had visible face and head trauma and was transported by ambulance to a local medical center.

The suspect is currently being held at Chaffee County Detention Facility.

Midland Trail is a very popular 3-mile trail near Buena Vista. It's a multi-use trail and consists of a dirt and gravel road with access from downtown near the Arkansas River. This should not be confused with the Midland Tunnels, which are located along County Road 371 in a similar area.
