Spokane police are looking for victims of unprovoked assaults similar to one along the Centennial Trial last week. In light of the arrest of 17-year-old Avondre Graham for the attack of a woman last week on the Centennial Trail, detectives are investigating any similar assaults, said police spokeswoman Officer Jennifer DeRuwe. The woman was walking on the trail near Mission Park when police say she was attacked by Graham with some sort of mallet Thursday. She received stitches in her head If anyone has been a victim of an assault or attempted assault this year, with the suspect description as a black male in his late teens or early 20’s, along the Centennial Trail near Mission Avenue and Perry Street, they should contact the police by filing a report with Crime Check at 456-2233. Graham appeared in Spokane County Superior Court Monday. He faces first-degree assault and first-degree robbery. Police are investigating any possible connection to the slaying of Sharlotte McGill who was stabbed to death in May in the area.
