Stabbing suspect captured

Posted: Updated:

Authorities say Curtis A. Nelson, the 21-year-old transient sought for a Spokane Valley stabbing overnight, has been captured.  Nelson was captured in a field in the 13600 block of East Broadway shortly after he ran from a relative's home.

The suspect was unarmed at the time of his arrest and offered no resistance.  It is anticipated he will be booked into the Spokane County Jail on a felony count of First Degree Assault in connection with last night's stabbing and Pines and Mansfield, deputies said.

Spokane Valley Police had been seeking the public's help in locating Nelson who they stabbed a man in the heart late Thursday.  Authorities say Curtis A. Nelson, 21, armed himself with a kitchen knife before fleeing a residence located in the area of Pines and Marietta in the Spokane Valley.

According to authorities, Nelson was at an acquaintance's home about 11:30pm when he was confronted about stealing a large amount of cash from the victim.  The victim, a 36-year-old Spokane Valley man, was able to retrieve some of the cash, but during the exchange, Nelson grabbed a kitchen knife and stabbed him in the chest.

The victim was transported to a downtown hospital where his condition was unknown Friday morning.  Nelson grabbed a second knife before fleeing the residence.  An extensive search by Spokane Valley Police overnight failed to locate him.
