Seeking Information Regarding Holmberg Park and Whitworth University Vandalism
August 31, 2016

Sometime during the evening of August 24, 2016 or early morning hours of August 25, 2016, Holmberg Park located at 9615 N. Wall and Whitworth University soccer and softball fields were vandalized.  Crime Stoppers of the Inland Northwest is offering a cash reward for anyone providing information leading to an arrest in these incidents.

At Holmberg Park, the suspect(s) drove through the grass, shredding it, and wrecked the fence around the pool.  The fence repairs could cost $1000 - $2000 depending on what portions can be salvaged.  The grass, with some work by the Spokane County Parks Crews, will eventually grow back.

This is a senseless crime that affects all the people who visit Holmberg Park, as well as all the citizens of Spokane County who will ultimately pay for the repairs.

Although it is not known if the incidents are related, similar damage was done to the Whitworth University soccer and softball fields during the same time frame.

In both incidents, the suspect(s) were possibly driving a large or full sized pickup based on the tire marks. 

Anyone with information regarding these incidents are urged to report it to Crime Stoppers or better yet, if you are responsible for this damage, step up and take responsibility for your actions before we find out who you are.

Male Shot after Suspect Asks about Gang Affiliation

On May 23, 2016 at approximately 1:45 a.m., Spokane Valley Sheriff’s Deputies responded to Valley Hospital’s Emergency Room for the report of a patient who was reporting he was punched and then shot in the leg while he was walking in the area of 600 North Vista Road in Spokane Valley.

The 47-year-old victim stated he was walking north on Dick Road when a male dressed in all red approached him.  The victim said the suspect asked him if he was affiliated with a gang.  The victim stated he wasn’t in a gang but believes he was targeted because he was wearing all blue clothing.   The suspect hit the victim a couple times, knocking his blue Seattle Mariners baseball cap off.  The victim was able to get away from the suspect who tried to get him to return for the baseball hat.  The victim refused and continued to walk away.  The suspect whistled which led the victim to believe the suspect was summoning additional people. 

As the victim continued walking, a vehicle pulled up and he heard gunshots.  The victim said the suspect who hit him was a passenger in the vehicle and was now shooting at him.  The victim said he fell to the ground after being hit in the leg as the vehicle fled the scene.

Deputies made contact with the occupants of a residence in the area they believed the suspect may have come from but the victim could not identify anyone as being involved. 

The victim was treated and released after receiving treatment for the wound to his lower leg. 

The incident is being investigated by the Spokane Regional Safe Streets Task Force.  The Spokane Regional Safe Streets Task Force is comprised of investigators from the Spokane County Sheriff’s Office, Spokane Valley Police Department, Spokane Police Department, Washington State Patrol, Washington State Department of Corrections and the FBI.

Spokane Police Detectives are investigating a break-in at the Spokane Property Evidence Facility parking lot, occurring overnight.  An observant on-duty Spokane Police officer discovered a break in the exterior fence and immediately secured the area.

The officer immediately secured the area and ensured the suspect was no longer there.  Surveillance video showed last night the suspect arriving on a bicycle before prowling through several of the vehicles in the lot.

The outdoor parking area of the facility is used to store vehicles involved in a variety of investigations. Detectives are conducting a comprehensive review of the incident; at this time the impact on investigations is unknown.  Sixteen vehicles prowled by the suspect in the outside parking lot were affected, but the suspect never entered the Property Evidence Facility building.

The Spokane Police Department takes the role of securing evidence very seriously. This is a highly unusual incident and the Spokane Police Department has already taken steps to ensure this does not occur again.
