Spokane police searching for mother after alleged assault

The Spokesman-Review
Spokane police are searching for a woman and her two young children after she reportedly violated court restrictions during an alleged domestic assault on Saturday. Patricia Lyons, 25, is wanted on a second-degree assault charge. Police believe she’s with her 5-year-old daughter, Athena Lyons, and 2-year-old son, Ronnie Adams. The children had been wards of the state but were returned to Lyons under a court order that police say Lyons violated on Saturday. Police say Lyons stabbed her ex-boyfriend in the hand. The children are to return to state custody under a court order obtained by Child Protective Services, but police can’t find Lyons. Lyons “is not in a healthy mental state and the children may be in harm,” according to a news release. She may be driving a white Chevy Lumina with Washington license plates 229XWX. Anyone with information on Lyons should call 911.
