News Release
Assault / Stabbing - 10/21/19

On October 21, 2019 at 0215am Kelso Police responded to North Kelso for an assault complaint.  During that investigation, officers learned a man was assaulted by two other males.  At 2:45am a second victim called 911 to report he had also been assaulted and possibly stabbed by two males.  Officers located the second victim caller and confirmed he had suffered multiple stab wounds.  The stabbing victim was transported to a local hospital where he is stable, but in critical condition.   

Both assaults occurred within approximately 300 yards of each other.  No other victims were located or identified.  Officers were in the area within minutes and were able to locate two suspects who matched descriptions provided by both victims.  Those two alleged suspects were detained and later arrested after discovering evidence to suggest they were the two suspects involved in these two incidents.

No additional suspects are being sought.  This is an active and ongoing criminal investigation and no further details will be released at this time.
