Major Crime Detectives Investigate Stabbing
Spokane Valley Major Crimes Detectives continue to investigate a stabbing which occurred yesterday evening at an apartment located at 11009 E. 3rd Ave. in Spokane Valley. Detectives are working through conflicting information and are asking for the public’s help.
Last night, March 18, 2019, prior to 6:30 p.m., Spokane Valley Deputies responded to a report of a stabbing. The call began when Valley Hospital Security reported a male just arrived at the Emergency Room with several stab wounds.
Responding Deputies gained as much information as possible while the 39-year-old male victim was receiving medical treatment for his severe and what appeared to be potentially life-threating wounds.
Major Crimes Detectives were called to the scene to continue the investigation. Detectives believe the stabbing occurred inside an apartment in the University Apartments Complex, but they received conflicting and inconsistent information during interviews and are seeking additional witnesses who may have information.
Detectives do not believe this is a random incident and the suspect or suspects may have fled the apartment complex on foot.
The victim is expected to recover from his injuries.
If you have information regarding this investigation, witnessed/heard an altercation or suspicious activity at, or in the area of, the University Apartments on March 18, 2019, between 5:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m., you are asked to call Major Crimes Detective Kirk Keyser at 509-477-6611, reference #10035905.
