A 38-year-old migrant worker was arrested after allegedly stabbing another man at a migrant camp.
Franklin County sheriff's deputies received a call around 10 p.m. Wednesday about an assault at the migrant camp at 501 Dayton Road, north of Pasco, said Detective Lee Barrow.
When deputies arrived, they found a victim who had been stabbed multiple times, Barrow said.
The victim, who had no identification on him and has not yet been identified by investigators, was treated at the scene and taken to the hospital.
Never miss a local story.
His injuries, while serious, did not appear to be life-threatening, Barrow said.
A motive for the attack has not been determined.
Joel Lopez-Cruz was identified as the alleged attacker and was arrested.
He is being held in the Franklin County jail on suspicion of first-degree assault.
The weapon, described as a "sharp instrument," was recovered with help from a Pasco police K-9 unit, Barrow said.
Man escapes injury during semi-truck crash
A Kennewick man escaped injury when his pickup was pushed off the Highway 395 by an overturned, sliding semi-truck.
Brian Mills, 50, of Kennewick, was about to cross the blue bridge just after 7 a.m. Thursday when he saw the semi-truck sliding toward him, said Washington State Patrol Trooper Oscar Garcia.
Fortunately, Mills was able to steer onto the shoulder to avoid being crushed.
"We got really lucky here, the pickup driver was paying attention," Garcia said.
Garcia said semi-truck driver Kenneth Headrick, 53, of Newport, was going too fast, taking the ramp from eastbound Highway 240 to northbound Highway 395.
His load ended up shifting and caused his tractor-trailer combination to tip over.
Traffic was congested as troopers investigated the wreck and prepared to lift to truck back on its wheels.
The backup on the highway did cause a crash about a mile south of the blue bridge when a motorcyclist rear-ended a car stopped in traffic.
Kipp Hudson, 29, of Kennewick, crashed his 2007 Honda Shadow into the back of a 1997 Chevrolet Lumina driven by Nayeli Aranda, 20, of Kennewick, troopers said.
Aranda was not hurt and she was able to drive her car away from the scene.
Hudson was treated at Kennewick General Hospital. Troopers said inattention and following too close by Hudson were factors in the collision.
Kennewick man jailed in alleged sexual assault
A 44-year-old Kennewick man was jailed early Wednesday for allegedly sexually assaulting a young Pasco girl.
Kennewick police began investigating the child rape case after the girl's father reported his daughter had been assaulted by a relative's neighbor.
Officers contacted Edwin Gamaliel Salazar, who claimed to be from El Salvador and said he didn't speak English, police said.
Salazar's wife apparently gave officers a different name for her husband.
Police called an agent with Immigration & Customs Enforcement, who ran Salazar's fingerprints through their system and found two different names for the same set of prints.
Both names had arrest warrants associated with it, police said. Officers also learned Salazar was in the country illegally.
Sgt. Ken Lattin said officers still are working to determine who Salazar is, but in the meantime did arrest him on suspicion of first-degree rape of a child.
He was booked into the Benton County jail under the Salazar name.
Richland bank robbery suspect still in the wind
The suspect in Monday's bank robbery in Richland is still on the lam and her identity is not yet known.
FBI officials, however, say they have added the Yakima Federal Savings & Loan robbery to the list of heists done by the Bad Hair bandit, said spokeswoman Ayn Dietrich.
They can't say conclusively, of course, until the suspect is apprehended, but Dietrich said the FBI believes the Bad Hair bandit has struck again.
The physical descriptions and mannerisms of the woman who walked into the bank at Jadwin Avenue and Swift Boulevard are similar to those matching the Bad Hair bandit, she said.
Richland's robbery is the 18th bank robbery the FBI has linked to the Bad Hair bandit since December.
A majority of the hold-ups have been on the west side in the Tacoma area.
However, the Bad Hair bandit -- who wears different wigs and is often seen in glasses and a black hat -- also hit banks in Moses Lake and Ellensburg in April.
The suspect robbed a Spokane bank in May, another Moses Lake bank in June and a Key Bank in Lake Oswego, Ore., on July 1.
In Richland's robbery, the suspect was seen getting into the passenger side of a silver sedan, possibly a Chrysler Sebring, with a rear spoiler.
