Man Arrested For Assault | Crime
Spokane Valley Police arrested a man for threatening an ex-roommate with a knife. They say 43-year-old Daniel De Long was drinking with the victim, who he used to live with, earlier in the day in the 18700 block of East Valleyway Court. Police say the victim called 911 when De Long came back, pushed himself through the front door and started yelling about getting some clothes. Police say the victim claims that during the argument, De Long picked up a knife from the kitchen and threatened to stab him.
Police arrived and ordered De Long to show his hands, but he ignored them. They say he turned and yelled at officers and walked toward them with clenched fists. Police say De Long resisted arrest but they were able to gain control and take him into custody.
He's booked into the Spokane County Jail for assault and resisting arrest. No one was injured in the incident.
