Spokane Valley Deputies Called to Stabbing/Robbery Last Night
Spokane Valley Deputies responded to a reported stabbing in the 10100 block of E. 15th near Dartmouth Rd. The suspect, later identified as 35 year-old Raymond J. Pfluger, fled prior to deputies arriving, was a friend of the victim, stolen some of her property and reportedly stated he was “high” on LSD. The victim received medical attention for a wound to her neck which was not life-threatening.
On July 30, 2017 at approximately 6:00 p.m., Spokane Valley Deputies responded to a report of a female who had been stabbed in the neck.
Arriving deputies were told the victim was in a motorhome on the property with Pfluger, who she has known for several years. They began arguing about Pfluger stealing items from her in the past when suddenly he grabbed her by the throat and she began screaming. The victim thought Pfluger hit her until she realized he was holding a pocket knife and she was stabbed. She broke free from the suspect’s grasp and fled to the residence, calling for help.
Deputies searched the area, with the assistance of a K9, but were unable to locate the Pfluger. They did locate articles of clothes he apparently left behind as he escaped on foot.
Pfluger faces charges of Assault 1st Degree and Robbery 1st Degree.
Anyone with information regarding this incident is urged to call Crime Check at 509-456-2233.
