Man found stabbed Tuesday in Garland District

Tue., May 1, 2012, 8:51 p.m.

A man was found with stab wounds to his head and torso in an alley in the Garland District of north Spokane Tuesday.

The man, who police said is about 30 years old, is expected to survive and could be the best witness police have to identify his assailant.

A citizen called 911 after finding the man badly injured in an alley in the 600 block of West Garland Avenue, near North Howard Street, before 6:30 p.m., said Spokane police Sgt. Mark Griffiths.

Police have not publicly identified the man. They said he remains in serious condition at a local hospital.

Griffiths said detectives still were investigating the details of the assault Tuesday evening.

“When we get a chance to talk to him we’ll probably learn a lot more,” Griffiths said.
