Man stabbed in confrontation outside Spokane Valley restaurant with wife’s ex-boyfriend

A man was stabbed in the stomach after confronting another man who he believed had an affair with his wife.

On Saturday the victim discovered text messages between his wife and Sidney Inniss Dashevsky. The victim’s wife, told her husband that she previously was in an intimate relationship with Dashevsky and they continued to text each other after the relationship ended, according to court records. The victim discovered the text messages after a day of drinking. He and his wife drove to the Timber Creek restaurant in Spokane Valley and waited for an hour and a half until Dashevsky emerged, court records say.

The victim got out of his vehicle and started arguing with Dashevsky, then tripped on a curb and fell. Dashevsky started punching him, according to court documents. After the victim fell another man joined Dashevsky in the assault. At some point Dashevsky stabbed the victim in the stomach, court records say.

When Spokane County sheriffs deputies arrived they found the victim with “his intestines protruding from his lower stomach.” Deputies discovered a bloody knife in Dashevsky’s vehicle.

The victim was transported to Sacred Heart. He was was in satisfactory condition on Monday.

Dashevsky, 24, is charged with first-degree assault and is being held in the Spokane County Jail.
