SPOKANE, Wash. - Spokane Police and Spokane County Sheriff Deputies are investigating a stabbing that happened in the area of 8th and Freya just before noon on Sunday. 

Police say a man was stabbed in the throat near the 700 block of S. Freya. The victim walked southbound to a church in the 1100 block of S. Freya. At the church, the victim was stabilized by a doctor until paramedics could arrive. The victim was transported to the hospital with life-threatening injuries, but we are told he is now stable at this time. 

Police were able to pull over a suspect based on a description of the suspect's vehicle near 3rd and Freya. An eyewitness was able to positively identify the man as the suspect and he has been taken into custody. He was later identified by police as 40-year-old Ian Bennington. Bennington was arrested on 1st Degree Assault, pending the injuries of the victim. 

Bennington told police he stabbed the victim out of self-defense after being punched in the face.
