Coeur d’Alene police arrest stabbing suspect
Coeur d’Alene police arrested a 21-year-old man today for allegedly stabbing another young man Wednesday afternoon on East Sherman Avenue near downtown.
Jayde A. Brown, a transient, was booked into the Kootenai County Jail for attempted homicide.
Brown, suspected of stabbing a 20-year-old man in the chest, was arrested at a local motel, police said.
The victim, who police have not named, was rushed into surgery Wednesday and is in stable condition. Like Brown, he also was listed as homeless.
Detectives determined the two men had previous disputes over stolen property.
The stabbing happened in the 1600 block of East Sherman just before 2 p.m. and prompted the lockdown of three Coeur d’Alene schools while police searched for the suspect, who fled on a mountain bike.
