Police recommend charges in Pullman stabbing case

PULLMAN, Wash. - Pullman police are recommending that a Cheney man face a felony assault count stemming from February's double stabbing on College Hill.

Officers responded to a large fight call at the Campus Commons North apartment complex during the early morning hours of Sunday February 3. Police found two men suffering from stab wounds, one in the buttocks and one in the chest.

Both were treated and released from the hospital.

Detectives have now completed their investigation and are asking prosecutors to charge a Cheney man with felony second degree assault for stabbing a 21-year-old Pullman man in the buttocks. Officers were unable to find enough evidence for a charging recommendation for who ever stabbed a 20-year-old Cheney man in the chest.

Pineda was not injured in the melee.    

A charging decision will now be made by the Whitman County Prosecutor's office.
