Man stabbed four times by old friend

A man was stabbed four times before he could flee Saturday during a confrontation with an old friend near Hooters in Spokane Valley.

The man suffered non-life threatening injuries, said Spokane Country Sherriff’s Office spokesman Craig Chamberlin.

No arrest has been made as authorities continue to investigate.

The stabbing occurred about 9 p.m. Saturday when the victim followed his old friend outside the building for what he thought was a talk about issues from the past, Chamberlin said.

The victim told deputies “the suspect pulled a folding knife out of his front pocket and stood in a threatening manner,” Chamberlin said. “Thinking the suspect was going to stab him, the victim struck the suspect in the face one time. The suspect attacked the victim and stabbed him at least four times before the victim could get away.”

Surveillance video of the incident confirmed victim’s account of the incident.
