SPOKANE, Wash. — Spokane police arrested a man after a stabbing in North Spokane Thursday night.
Police said a father and son were working on a vehicle on North Walnut Street around 6 p.m. when the man came up to them.
Shortly after, authorities said the man stabbed the father in the torso in what they called a “completely unprovoked attack.” The adult son attempted to follow the suspect but he was able to get away.
The man was taken to the hospital and is expected to be okay.
A K-9 unit arrived on scene and started looking for the suspect. Just before 8 p.m., officers were still searching the area and they received a 911 call from the area of the 4900 block of North Adams Street. The caller reported a suspicious person hiding in an alley. Officers arrived and contacted the person, who was detained and identified as the stabbing suspect.
Spokane police arrested 23-year-old Corey Taylor around 8:00 p.m. He was charged with first-degree assault. Police said Taylor also had an outstanding felony warrant from the Washington State Department of Corrections. Police said Taylor is a convicted felon with a "history of felonious assault."
Taylor made his first court appearance Friday afternoon. A judge set his bond at $100,000.
