***PRESS RELEASE FROM SPOKANE POLICE***

SPOKANE, Wash. - Friday afternoon, Spokane Police charged stabbing suspect, Joel Arevalo, with another northside stabbing which occurred on 01-22-13 around 100 E Euclid.  On 01-22-13 Spokane Police Department responded to a stabbing in the area of 100 E Euclid.

The victim had been stabbed 16 times in the back.  Police were unable to locate or determine a suspect at that time, partially because the victim was incapacitated due to his injuries. 

Detectives had been unable to question him about the assault due to his injuries until Friday.  Detectives were able to interview the victim Friday at a local hospital. The victim identified the suspect as his step-son, Joel Arevalo.  The suspect allegedly threatened the victim earlier in the evening at his residence and then followed him to an acquaintances' residence where he attacked him on the street, stabbing him multiple times in the back.

Detectives learned that Arevalo was already in custody for 1st Assault and 1st Burglary reference an incident the previous night.  In that incident, which occurred at 1800 W Dean, Arevalo slashed the tires on his step-grandfathers truck, forced his way into his residence and stabbed him in the chest.  Both victims are in stable condition at this time. 

The charge of 1st Assault was added to Arevalo's other pending charges at Spokane County Jail.
