Home Invasion In N. Spokane; Suspects On The Loos - Spokane, North Idaho News & Weather KHQ.com

DEVELOPING STORY: Sword Used To Ward Off Attackers In Home Invasion In N. Spokane

KHQ.COM - Right now Spokane Police are searching for four suspects in an early morning home invasion in the Indian Trail area. It happened shortly before 3 a.m. Tuesday in the area of N. Woodridge Dr. and Alpine Court across the street from Woodridge Elementary.

Police told KHQ's Blake Jensen at the scene that one of the occupants in the home recognized at least one of the four male suspects and allowed them to enter the home. 

Once inside, one of the four suspects pulled out a pistol and proceeded to zip tie at least two occupants in the home. We're told there were four people in the house at the time - two adult males, an adult female and a small child. 

Police say as the suspects were gathering items to steal, one of the occupants broke out of his zip ties, grabbed a decorative sword in the home and fought off the attackers. The four suspects then fled the house in a dark colored Dodge Intrepid, according to Spokane Police, with one of the suspects possibly suffering slash wounds. 
 
Police say one occupant was beaten badly and was taken to the hospital. Right now police say they have no motive in the attack, but they say they did recover narcotics from the house. They're not sure yet how that will fit into their investigation.
 
If you have information about this incident or the four suspects, you're asked to call CrimeCheck at 509-456-2233.
