Spokane Police: Malicious Harassment Arrest

OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE: On Friday about 10:40pm, members of the Spokane Violent Crimes Gang Enforcement Team responded to the area of 5th Ave. / Arthur St. in Spokane to investigate a reported malicious harassment. The victims, both African American female adults, reported that two subjects, both white male adults, threatened them with a rifle and a yard tool. While the suspects threatened the victims, they shouted out racial epithets, and threatened to harm them. Based upon the context of the threats and the circumstances of the incident, the victims said they feared for their personal safety and left the area and called the police. 
 
The suspects were contacted in the area a short time later and admitted to the police that they had in fact threatened the victims, while shouting out racial epithets. The rifle was recovered and determined to be a pelet rifle that appeared to be an actual firearm. 
 
Based upon the victim's statements, suspect's admissions, and the circumstances surrounding the incident, officers placed a 22 year old male from Spokane, under arrest for Malicious Harassment. The second suspect, a 42 year old male from Spokane, will be formally charged with Malicious Harassment at a later date. 
 
Any additional witnesses or persons with information related to this incident are encouraged to contact the Spokane Police Violent Crime Gang Enforcement team at 625-GANG (4264).
