Arrests Made in Spokane Valley Stabbing

OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE: SPOKANE, Wash. - Two Spokane Valley residents were injured with non-life threatening assault wounds Monday afternoon, and the suspects who injured them are in custody thanks to a sheriff's office School Resource Deputy.

Corporal Jeff Welton, Spokane Valley Police spokesman, said that 21-year-old Cousteau C. Wright went to a home in the 4700 block of North Progress Road about 4 p.m. Monday and started a fight with a 20-year-old male.    

During the fight, Wright stabbed the victim with a large knife in the upper left shoulder.  He also summoned a 21-year-old friend, John P. Ledoux, to the scene for back-up. 

Ledoux struck a 17-year-old female in the throat with the handle of a hammer.

The two suspects fled in separate vehicles, but were spotted on Upriver Drive by SRD Ron Nye.  The deputy stopped both cars and held the occupants at gunpoint until backup deputies arrived.

Following interviews with all parties, Wright was arrested for First-Degree Assault and Ledoux for Second-Degree Assault.

Both suspects were booked into the Spokane County Jail on their felony charges.

During summer months when school is out of session, sheriff's school resource deputies fill a variety of roles.  Some augment patrol while others perform Centennial Trail bicycle patrols and still others work in the sheriff's marine patrol.

During the school year, Ron Nye is assigned as the resource deputy for the Freeman/Liberty School District.
