Juvenile pair arrested on multiple assault charges

Staff Writer

Spokane County Sheriff’s Office Major Crimes detectives arrested one juvenile suspect for second-degree assault following a violent attack, which resulted in a juvenile male victim suffering minor injuries, and a second juvenile suspect hospitalized with serious wounds from a knife.
A second suspect was arrested and booked for first-degree attempted murder, second-degree assault and felony harassment-threats to kill.
On Sept. 21, just after 11 p.m., Spokane County Sheriff’s deputies responded to Wild Rose Prairie on a report of an assault and possible robbery, where knives and/or a machete were used, and multiple people stabbed.
Arriving deputies contacted the 17-year-old victim who sustained what appeared to be minor injuries and refused medical treatment.
Through the subsequent investigation, Deputies learned the victim and a witness had just begun to date. They were in a car with one of the suspects, another juvenile, who the witness had previously dated, and three of his friends, one of which was the second suspect.
