Law enforcement in Spokane County are investigating the fourth stabbing in two weeks.
None appear to be connected, and suspects have been arrested in three.
The most recent stabbing occurred about midnight Thursday after three men left a party and were walking near Standard Street and Cozza Avenue when one was stabbed by an unidentified assailant.
The attacker confronted the group and said he knew one of the men, then pushed the victim to the ground and stabbed him at least once before fleeing on foot. The victim’s friends called police about 12:30 a.m. The wounds were not life-threatening.
The assailant is described as black, six feet tall and wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and red bandanna. Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Check at (509) 456-2233.
Two men are accused of attacking another man in his home Oct. 27. Another man is accused of stabbing his neighbor in an apparent attempt at revenge. Then on Oct. 29, 22-year-old Blain A. Gooding allegedly stabbed Rodney Barce in the stomach during a fight in the 6600 block of North Addison Street.
All suspects in those cases are in jail.
