Two people stabbed in early morning fight

Posted: Updated:
SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. - An early-morning party went sideways Tuesday and two men ended up with non-life threatening stab wounds. 

At about 3:50 a.m., officers were called to a home in the 10000 block of East 9th that has been converted into apartments. 

A caller to 911 reported people outside fighting and yelling that someone had been stabbed.

Before officers arrived, two vehicles took off from the scene, one westbound and the other eastbound.

The eastbound vehicle, a beige pickup, was spotted and stopped at Broadway and McDonald.  The driver had a stab wound in his leg. 

The driver of the westbound vehicle apparently took the other combatant to a downtown hospital where he is undergoing treatment for a stab wound in his stomach.

Police say it appears the man with the stomach wound was stabbed first, then disarmed his attacker and used the knife to stab him in the leg, however police say stories varied and detectives are now at the scene attempting to determine the sequence of events.

The party may be related to a pair of alcohol thefts from Hico Village in the 9000 block of E. Sprague.  About 2:30 a.m., a man entered the store and ran out with a bottle of wine.

An hour later, two men entered the store and attempted to leave with another four bottles of wine.  The clerk challenged the two and attempted to block their path. She was shoved out of the way as the suspects escaped, making the second theft a strong-arm robbery.

Officers have security video from the Hico and are attempting to link the suspects with people at the party on 9th.
