Stabbing at Spokane's Downtowner Motel

SPOKANE, Wash. - Spokane Police say one person is in custody following a stabbing at the Downtowner Motel at 165 S. Washington Avenue. Police say the victim, an unidentified male, is listed in serious condition at an area hospital with a stab wound in the neck. The victim is expected to live.

According to officers at the scene, the stabbing was actually the second time they were called to the Downtowner Motel that night to deal with an incident involving both the victim and the suspect. The first time they were called was because of a fight between the two men just after 2:00 Monday morning. By the time they'd arrived, the two men had left the premises of the Motel together, so there was nothing police could do.

A short time later, about 2:45 Monday morning, the two men returned to the Motel and began once again arguing and fighting. This time the fight escalated and police say one of the men stabbed the other in the neck.

Police arrived to the Downtowner in minutes and arrested a 24 year-old male in an upstairs motel room. They also recovered a knife from the scene that they believe was probably used in the attack. Right now it is not clear what charges the suspect will face-- police say they are waiting to ascertain the condition of the victim before bringing charges against the suspect.

The victim was alert and concious when he was taken to the hospital.
