Child Predator Sentenced to 8 Years

0

Serial child predator sentenced to 8 years to life in prison after pleading guilty to several felony charges in Spokane County Superior Court

On August 25, 2021, Charles Green (59 y/o) pled guilty to 2 counts of Second Degree Assault (DV) and Communicating with a Minor for Immoral Purposes. As part of this plea deal, Green also pled guilty in May to First Degree Child Molestation and 2 counts of Second Degree Child Molestation.

Green was charged with 26 felonies involving 16 child victims before pleading guilty to 6 of the 26 felony charges.

In May 2018, two teenage victims reported Green was sending sexually explicit messages to his children’s friends. SPD Detectives soon discovered allegations that Green had committed over 50 felonies involving more than 16 girls ranging in age from 11 – 17. Green was ultimately charged with 26 felony crimes, including child molestation, commercial sexual abuse of a minor, communication with a minor for immoral purposes, possession of depictions of a minor engaged in sexually explicit conduct, and multiple counts of providing drugs to minors (including methamphetamine and marijuana).

Green was sentenced to 98 months to life in prison. As a condition of his First Degree Child Molestation plea, Green must file a petition demonstrating he is no longer a threat to society to be eligible for release. If released, Green would be required to register as a sex offender.

SPD takes all allegations of sexual assault extremely seriously and is committed to vigorous investigation in the pursuit of justice.

SPD Arrest 5 in Robbery Shooting Call

Spokane Police Department arrest 5 in connection with an attempted robbery that occurred in the downtown area

On 08/21/2021, at about 1:07 P.M, Officers responded to a shooting in the 400 block of South Maple St. in the downtown area of Spokane. While Officers were en-route, the caller advised that one male had been shot in the parking lot and the suspects were fleeing in a vehicle.

Once Officers arrived on-scene, they located a male with a single gunshot wound.  While talking to the victim, he advised he was just “robbed” and provided Officers a detailed description of the vehicle that was used in the shooting. 

Another Officer, who was responding to the scene, located the vehicle used in the robbery and attempted to catch up to the vehicle. When Officers tried to stop the vehicle, the vehicle took off at a high rate of speed.

Based on recent changes, Officers had to establish probable cause before a pursuit was initiated.  Fortunately Officers were able to maintain visual until this element was met which took extra time due to Officers still investigating at the crime scene. Officers were able to determine probable cause existed on the vehicle and its occupants for Robbery 1st so the pursuit was initiated.

During the pursuit, one of the occupants threw a firearm out of the window which was recovered. Also during the pursuit, Officers were able to spike the vehicle to slow the vehicle down. At one point, Officers initiated a PIT maneuver to end the pursuit.  The vehicle spun out and struck a parked car. Some of the occupants in the vehicle fled and were later apprehended a short time later. All 5 occupants were detained while the investigation continued.

Once everyone was detained, Officers ran the license plate of the vehicle.  The plates on the vehicle came back stolen.  Officers tried to get a hold of the owner to determine if the vehicle was stolen but were unable to get a hold of the owner at this time.

During the investigation all 5 occupants were arrested. The following charges are as follows:

The driver of the vehicle, identified as 20 year old Chandler Alexander, was arrested and booked into the Spokane County Jail for Attempt to Elude a Police Vehicle, Robbery 1st degree, Possession of Stolen Property 3rd degree, Resisting Arrest and Obstruction.

20 year old Dylen Swan was arrested and booked into the Spokane County Jail for 1st Robbery, Unlawful Possession of a Firearm 2nd degree, and an un-related misdemeanor warrant.  Dylen was also booked into the Spokane County Jail for 2 more counts of Robbery from an incident that occurred yesterday.

38 year old Giovanni Juarez was arrested and booked into the Spokane County Jail for Robbery 1st degree and an unrelated felony warrant for Possession of a Stolen Vehicle.

21 year old Roniah Friedlander was arrested and booked into the Spokane County Jail for Robbery 1st degree.

17 year old female was arrested and booked into the Spokane County Juvenile Detention Center for Robbery 1st.  Due to her age, her name will not be released at this time.

This case is still under investigation.  The victim was transported to a local hospital to be treated for his injuries. His injuries were listed as non-life threatening. No one else was injured during this incident.

Deputies Locate and Arrest Stabbing Suspect

Deputies Locate and Arrest Stabbing Suspect

Spokane County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to a person with a weapon/stabbing call at the Big Foot Tavern on N. Division.  Arriving Deputies learned the suspect fled the scene following a fight.  Deputies identified the suspect and later found him walking near his home, where he was safely arrested.  The victim was provided medical attention for a deep cut to his hand.  

On August 25, 2021, at approximately 1:25 am, Spokane County Deputies responded to a call of a fight/stabbing at the Bigfoot Tavern located at 9115 N. Division in Spokane County. 

Arriving Deputies located an adult male victim with what appeared to be a deep cut to his hand.  The victim was provided medical attention for the non-life-threatening wound.  Deputies were told the adult male suspect, and a female left the tavern prior to the arrival of Deputies. 

Through the investigation, Deputies identified the suspect as 30-year-old Marc J. Holzer.  A perimeter was established, and a K9 Unit was requested to attempt a track to locate Holzer.  The perimeter units gave K9 warnings, and when the K9 Team arrived, a track was initiated.  Deputies were assisted by Spokane Police Department Officers.

As the investigation continued, Deputies learned Holzer might have made it to his home, located in the 6000 block of N. Buffalo Street.  Deputies quickly established a perimeter around the house as they worked to confirm if Holzer was inside and began the process to obtain a search warrant.

At approximately 3:25 am, a Deputy on the perimeter near the home observed a male matching Holzer’s description walking with a female on W. Central Ave. at N. Monroe.  The Deputy made contact at W. Central and N. Buffalo St. and identified the male as Holzer.  Holzer was arrested without incident.

The victim and witnesses at the scene told Deputies the incident began when Holzer and another male got into a physical fight.  The victim tried to intervene and break up the fight, but Holzer pulled out a folding pocketknife and raised it above his head.  The victim tried to block Holzer’s armed assault and received a deep cut to the palm of his hand.  Hearing the commotion, the bouncer of the tavern ran outside and broke up the fight.  Afterward, Holzer fled the scene on foot. 

Holzer was advised of his rights and agreed to answer questions.  He admitted to being at the Bigfoot Tavern earlier, where several subjects confronted him.  He pulled out a knife, a scuffle ensued, and one of the subjects was injured.  Holzer then fled on foot. 

Deputies located the knife believed to have been used by Holzer in a driveway, several hundred yards west of the tavern.

Holzer was transported and booked into the Spokane County Jail for Assault 2nd Degree.

900 East Indiana Standoff Ends with Suspect in Custody

0

Early morning standoff concludes with arrest for multiple felonies

On August 25, 2021 just after 3:00am, 911 received a phone call from a victim stating she had been assaulted and was unsure where she was. The victim said she was currently with the suspect who threatened to kill her with a knife earlier in the evening. She told 911 the suspect was currently asleep, but was afraid he would wake up if she tried to leave.

The investigation lead officers to a residence in the 900 block of E. Indiana Avenue. As the victim remained on the line with 911, she continued to express her fear of being killed by the suspect.

Shortly after realizing officers were on scene, she exited the residence to safety.  She told officers the suspect strangled her in addition to threatening to kill her. Officers developed probable cause for Second Degree Assault and Unlawful Imprisonment. 

Due to having probable cause for a felony assault and the suspect potentially being armed with a deadly weapon, the residence was surrounded by on scene officers and additional resources from SPD SWAT (Special Weapons and Tactics), K-9, and Hostage/Crisis Negotiators were requested.

Prior to specialized resources arriving, the suspect exited the residence and was taken into custody without further incident.

SPD frequently activates specialized personnel/resources as part of the commitment to resolve incidents peacefully and to maintain the safety of all parties involved.

The suspect was identified as Daniel L. Murphy (54 y/o). Murphy was charged with Second Degree Assault and Unlawful Imprisonment.
