In brief: Suspect sought in stabbing; victim undergoes surgery


Police are looking for a man suspected of stabbing another man on the South Hill early Saturday.

The victim, a 32-year-old white male, was stabbed on the 1000 block of South Maple Street in the abdomen around 1:30 a.m. Medics treated him at the scene and transported him to a hospital. He was in serious but stable condition and underwent surgery later in the day.

Police set up a perimeter around the scene and conducted a K-9 search but were unable to locate the assailant. Police are following up on leads to identify and locate him.

The assailant is described as a white male, 20 to 30 years old, with blond hair and a medium build. He was wearing an Atlanta baseball cap, a blue coat and jeans. He was last seen running from the scene south on Maple.

Man seen pacing on bridge just getting good workout

STATELINE, Idaho – A man’s boisterous exercise routine on a bridge above the Spokane River sparked fears that he was about to jump.

A motorist traveling on nearby Interstate 90 spotted the man on the bridge Thursday along the popular Centennial Trail path where it crosses the Spokane River near the Idaho-Washington border.

Concerned the 40-year-old man was about to jump, the driver called authorities.

But when Kootenai County sheriff’s deputies arrived, they found only a man engaged in a strenuous workout routine – animated, pacing, burning those calories with a vengeance – but by no means contemplating a plunge into the abyss.

The Coeur d’Alene Press reported the emergency call was dismissed as a false report.
