Spokane man allegedly threatens woman with a weapon

Spokane residents often hear about weapons used by assailants in crimes such as robbery and assault. Suspects use weapons such as knives or guns in order to threaten their victims and commit the illegal activity. Because of the serious nature of weapon charges, the accused will want to make sure they develop the strongest possible argument in their favor.

Recently, a 37-year-old Spokane man was apprehended by authorities for allegedly assaulting two women and threatening to "get" a young girl while he was searching for his ex-girlfriend. Based on the report, a woman was visiting her friend when the man entered the house, grabbed her around the neck and repeatedly punched her in the face. The woman stated that the man also brandished a knife and threatened her. The woman reportedly told him that there was also a 5-year-old girl in the apartment. The man then allegedly approached the child's mother and assaulted her, slapping her in the face. The attacker also allegedly broke a glass table.

The man, who had been previously convicted of assault, robbery and domestic violence, is now facing a new set of charges, including harassment, assault and burglary. The defense that is used in a case like this will depend on the gravity of the charges, so it is important to first determine whether the charges will be misdemeanors or felonies.

Any defendant accused of serious felony charges may want to seek out a legal professional that can advise him or her about the intricacies of the court system. The assistance of a professional adept in the legal system can certainly help a defendant seek out the best possible outcome.
