Spokane Valley Police arrested nine people in a raid of two Spokane Valley homes Tuesday and found a 12-year-old boy who had been assaulted several times.
Search warrants were served at homes at 4609 N. Calvin and 14323 E. Longfellow as investigators looked for stolen property from multiple burglaries. The boy was found at the home on Calvin. The boy’s father reportedly took him to the home to be “disciplined,” said police spokesman Deputy Craig Chamberlin.
Multiple felony charges are expected to be filed against those arrested today. The assault case will be handled by the Kootenai County Sheriff’s Office because the abuse allegedly occurred in Idaho, Chamberlin said.
