Major Crimes Detectives need help identifying assault, theft suspect

Spokane County Sheriff’s Office Major Crimes Detectives are looking for an assault suspect.

Detectives are investigating a reported assault at the Petro station on Friday, September 20. They are also looking into reports of a stolen truck from the same time and place, and investigating if it is connected to the assault.

Witnesses reported that a silver Toyota RAV4 pulled into the parking lot, and two men and two women got out and entered the store.

After a few minutes, one of the men grabbed a tire thumper and allegedly assaulted one of the women. The other three left, leaving the suspect behind.

Around the same time, a dark red 1993 Ford F-150, license plate C39998S, was stolen from the same area. It is unknown if that vehicle theft was connected to the assault.

No one involved in the incident has been identified yet.
