On September 17th, 2013, at 1:20 a.m., Spokane Valley Sheriff's Deputies responded to the 13300 block of East Mission on an assault call. Deputies arrived on scene to find an adult, female victim bloody on her bed with two knives next to her. There was also a sword on her bed that had the handle bent. She said the sword was not damaged the night prior and figured that was what was used to assault her. Deputies did not find forced entry into the residence and figured the victim's 13-year-old son and his 14-year-old friend were the suspects.

Deputies responded to the 14-year-old juvenile males residence near 11700 E. Mission and contacted his father. He thought his son had stayed with his 13-year-old friend. He also saw his 2005 Dodge Durango was missing along with the keys that hung inside the garage.

While at the residence, deputies were advised of a hit and run collision at 7800 E. Alki. Deputies responded to locate the 2005 Durango running. It had struck the side of a mobile home and the occupants in the vehicle fled the scene.

While Deputy S. Stipe and his K9 partner Brax were tracking the suspects, dispatch advised there was a burglary near the 8900 block of E. Boone where two males were seen breaking into the house. Numerous deputies responded and found forced entry into the house as well as severe damage to the inside of the residence. While deputies were inside the residence, a Washington State Patrol Trooper saw two males running from the area of the house. K9 Brax located the 13-year-old and 14-year-old males hiding nearby.

After the juvenile males were arrested and advised of their rights, the female victim's 13-year-old son spoke with deputies. He told deputies his 14-year-old friend tried to kill his mother with a sword. He said he talked his friend into trying to kill his mother because he had been taking "blue pills". The 14-year-old suspect also admitted to attempting to kill his friend's mother and that they were going to leave town afterwards. The victim's son also said his 14-year-old friend tried to talk him into eating his mother, specifically her liver. The victim's 13-year-old son blamed his thought process on his drug usage and said he would never do anything like that sober.

• Both males were booked into Juvenile Detention for Assault 2nd Degree, Taking a Motor Vehicle Without Permission, Residential Burglary, Malicious Mischief 2nd Degree and Hit and Run.
