Stabbing Call at Red Top Concludes with Two People Arrested
Spokane Valley Deputies responded to a suspicious person call, which was later changed to a stabbing. Three people were involved, and through the investigation, the adult female suspect was arrested for Assault 2nd Degree, Identity Theft 2nd Degree, and Making False or Misleading Statements. The adult male victim was transported to the hospital for medical treatment. Once medically cleared, he was booked into jail for a misdemeanor warrant and a new charge of Possession of a Controlled Substance.
On August 26, 2023, at approximately 8:30 am, Spokane Valley Deputies responded to 7323 E. Trent Avenue regarding a bleeding male.
Once Deputies arrived, a male was observed stumbling out of the bushes and covered in blood near the Red Top Motel, 7217 E. Trent. The male, later identified as 29-year-old Justen M. Billings, was reportedly injured during a physical altercation in room 123.
One female, later identified as 26-year-old Savanna N. Timbey, and a second adult female, later determined to have not committed a crime, were contacted inside the room. Timbey initially lied about her name and was detained.
Through information gained from interviews and witness statements, it appears this incident began as an argument, which escalated into a physical altercation. Billings sustained what appeared to be deep lacerations from broken glass during the incident. Deputies developed probable cause to charge Timbey with Assault 2nd Degree (felony), Identity Theft 2nd Degree (felony), and Making False Misleading Statements (misdemeanor), and she was booked into jail.
Billings was transported to the hospital for medical treatment, and once cleared, he was transported and booked for a misdemeanor warrant (criminal trespass 2nd Degree) and a new charge of Possession of a Controlled Substance (suspected Fentanyl), a gross misdemeanor.
Timbey was released the following day on her own recognizance at approximately 10:00 am, after Spokane County Superior Court Commissioner T. Chavez reviewed her probable cause arrest.
Billings was released on his own recognizance at approximately 11:00 am the same day, after Spokane Municipal Court Judge M. Logan reviewed his warrant and probable cause arrest.
The second female was released without charges following the investigation.
