Spokane Valley Deputies & Major Crimes Detectives are investigating a stabbing that occurred after a fight between two family members escalated Sunday evening. The suspect, 27-year-old Amanda R. Kayioni was arrested for Assault 1st Degree (DV) and the victim was treated for non-life-threatening injuries.
On February 4, 2018, at approximately 10:45 p.m., Spokane Valley Deputies responded to an apartment located in the 12100 block of E. Alki for a reported stabbing.
Arriving Deputies learned the adult victim and the suspect, Kayioni, began arguing in the kitchen which escalated into the two hitting each other with frying pans. A third family member took the pans away from the combatants but minutes later, Kayioni armed herself with a knife and began stabbing the victim in the upper arm/shoulder area.
The third family member intervened again and disarmed Kayioni. The victim was transported to a local hospital where she received treatment for non-life-threatening injuries.
Kayioni was arrested at the scene without incident. Major Crimes Detectives were called to the scene to continue the investigation.
Kayioni was booked into the Spokane County Jail for Assault 1st Degree (DV).
