Stabbed Man Collapses; Transient Arrested

Spokane police arrested a 28-year-old transient Sunday afternoon, the alleged suspect in the robbery and stabbing of a 42-yearold Tekoa, Wash., man.

The stabbing occurred about 4 a.m. Sunday near Second and Pine.

Police arrested Jeffrey Michael Shann near Riverside and Madison after witnesses gave police a description of the assailant.

Police said the suspect and the victim had been drinking at a nearby tavern before the incident.

The victim, who was stabbed in the neck, staggered into a motel near Second and Division and collapsed. He was treated at a hospital and released, said Dick Cottam, police spokesman.

Shann was booked into jail on a first-degree robbery charge.
