Man critically injured in golf club stabbing

By The Spokesman-Review

A man stabbed with a broken golf club in Spokane Valley was in critical condition late Tuesday.

Deputies were called to a home near 32nd Avenue and Best Road about 8:45 p.m. Tuesday by a resident who apparently stabbed the man with the club, said Spokane County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Deputy Craig Chamberlin.

Details of the incident were sketchy late Tuesday. Two men on bicycles came to the home three times looking for a female resident who was not around, Chamberlin said. The third time, one of the bicyclists threw a rock at a male resident, sparking a fight. The resident used a golf club to hit one of the bicyclists. When the club broke, he stabbed one of the men with it.

The resident called police and the man who was stabbed was taken to a hospital where he was in critical condition.

“They had to use CPR to bring him back,” Chamberlin said.

Chamberlin said the resident was being interviewed late Tuesday.
