Home-invasion assault in Pullman

A man ransacked a Pullman home at knife point Monday after attempting to strangle a resident, police said.

Police responded to a home on Northeast Whitman Street about 3:20 p.m., where the victim said he was assaulted by a man but was able to free himself and call police from a neighbor's house.

The attacker ransacked the home while a woman resident was inside, but the woman was not hurt and man apparently didn't take anything. The male victim received minor neck injuries but did not require medical attention.

The suspect was described as a black man, 5-foot-8 to 6-feet tall, in his early 20s with short black hair. He wore a white hooded sweatshirt, light blue basketball-style shorts and athletic shoes. He left with the knife.

Anyone with information is asked to call Pullman police at (509) 334-0802.
