DOC fugitive now accused of assault

A Spokane man arrested for violating his probation on a robbery conviction also is accused of a new assault. 

Christopher M. Prusch, 35, faces a second-degree assault charge for allegedly choking a woman and striking her during an argument at a home in the 5300 block of North Martin Street June 6.

The woman said she'd asked Prusch to leave her home when he attacked her. Police photographed “fingerprint size bruises on her throat,” according to court documents.

Prusch told police he hit the woman after he was pushed but denied choking her.

Prusch was arrested last Wednesday on a Department of Corrections warrant for escape from community custody.

He appeared in Spokane County Superior Court on the new assault charge Monday. His bond was set at $25,000, but even if he pays it he won't be release because of a DOC probation hold.

Prusch's criminal history includes convictions for second-degree robbery, intimidation of a public servant and hit and run.

A national sex offender registry website lists Prusch has having a conviction for third-degree rape in 1994, but he's no longer listed in the Spokane County sex offender registry.

Spokane gang team arrests 2 fugitives

The gang team arrested two men this week in Spokane for violating their probation on violent crimes.

Christopher M. Prusch, 35, (pictured left) was booked into jail Wednesday on a Department of Corrections warrant for escape from community custody, Spokane police Officer Matt Rose said today.

His lengthy criminal history includes convictions for second-degree robbery, intimidation of a public servant and hit and run.

 A national sex offender registry website lists Prusch has having a conviction for third-degree rape in 1994, but he's no longer listed in the Spokane County sex offender registry.

Later on Wednesday, the Spokane Violent Crime Gang Enforcement Team also assisted Department of Corrections officers in arresting Ismael M. Tarango, 35, of Walla Walla, for a DOC escape warrant.

Tarango (pictured right) is a convicted killer with convictions for first-degree burglary and second-degree murder from the 1990s. He also was booked into jail.
