Aug. 31, 2022 Updated Wed., Aug. 31, 2022 at 8:01 p.m.

Spokane police arrested a man on Monday who is suspected of stabbing one of his family members two times.

Cameron StandingRock, 49, was booked into Spokane County Jail for first-degree burglary and second-degree assault, police said.

His bond was set at $50,000.

Officers responded on Sunday to 820 North Summit Parkway in the West Central neighborhood, where a man had sustained two non-life threatening injuries in the attack.

The victim told police that StandingRock entered his apartment brandishing a large kitchen knife. StandingRock then told the victim “he was going to die today” and charged towards him in the kitchen, according to a probable cause affidavit.

The victim tried to protect his neck and was stabbed twice in the left forearm.

A witness said StandingRock fled moments later.

StandingRock was located the next day and arrested by the Spokane Police Department’s Violent Crimes Task Force without incident, police said.
