Stabbing suspect, victim taken into custody

SPOKANE, Wash.- The suspect in a stabbing in northwest Spokane early Tuesday morning will appear in a Spokane courtroom on Wednesday. The stabbing victim is also expected to appear in court after police arrested both.

Thirty nine-year-old John D. Anderson was arrested on an outstanding warrant after officers responded to the 7000 block of North Tucannon Court just after midnight Tuesday. According to officers on scene, a woman called saying Anderson was banging on her back sliding glass doors yelling for help.

Officers say Anderson was combative and they held him down as medics treated a stab wound to his left abdomen.

Abel G. Rocha, 49, was arrested less than an hour later, accused of stabbing Anderson while the two were drinking in a turnout along Aubrey L. White Parkway in Riverside State Park.

Anderson was in surgery during his scheduled first appearance in Spokane County Superior Court.

His arraignment on one count of felony malicious harassment is scheduled for Aug. 25. Police say he left two sexually explicit voice mails for a Spokane County employee in June.

Anderson's criminal history includes convictions for indecent liberties, second-degree robbery, second-degree attempted burglary, assault, obstructing an officer and menacing.

He faces a new charge of malicious harassment after police say he left two sexually explicit voice mails for a Spokane County employee in June.
