Ouch: Skull fractured in sword attack

Police are looking for a sword-wielding maniac who attacked a bystander in Spokane Valley earlier this week, landing at least two blows on the victim's head and fracturing his skull.

Investigators think they know who's responsible and are asking for help locating the man they suspect of being the attacker: 27-year-old Nicholas Howell. They ask anyone with information about where Howell is to contact Crime Check at (509) 456-2233.
