DENVER (AP) -- Prosecutors have declined to file charges against a man who was arrested for allegedly stabbing three people in a parking lot at the Denver Broncos' stadium after a game.

Lynn Kimbrough, a spokeswoman for the District Attorney's Office, tells The Denver Post that prosecutors did not think they could win a conviction because no one could positively identify a suspect. The knife was never found.

Police arrested 29-year-old Justin Lee Manzanares after the Dec. 12 fight over a near fender-bender. Two others were taken into custody but were released.

Mathew DeHerrera, who was one of the three people stabbed, called it a "horrible decision" not to prosecute Manzanares. DeHerrera says he couldn't identify the man in a photo lineup because he was on medications shortly after surgery.

None of the victims suffered life-threatening injuries.
