Pasco stabbing, dispute, assault keep police busy

Pasco police stayed busy over the weekend, responding to reports of a stabbing, a violent domestic disturbance and two people receiving serious head injuries.

Several calls came in between 8 and 9 p.m. Saturday, resulting in the arrests of two men who allegedly used knives to attack women.

The calls also involved a 25-year-old man being admitted to a hospital in critical condition after he was shoved from a longboard, and a 5-year-old boy being taken to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle after he was injured while running into the street.

The stabbing took place about 9 p.m. at the Tepeyac Haven Apartments on North 22nd Avenue.

A 31-year-old woman with a stab wound to her abdomen ran by an officer as he arrived on scene, police said. The officer was then confronted by Angel Negrete-Villalobos, who was carrying a large butcher knife.

The officer ordered Negrete-Villalobos, 39, to drop the knife, and the suspect was arrested.

Sgt. Jason Miller applied pressure to the woman’s wound, which police say pierced her liver and was life-threatening, until medics arrived. She was taken to a local hospital for surgery.

Negrete-Villalobos was booked into the Franklin County jail on suspicion of first-degree assault and felony violation of a no contact order.

Shortly before the stabbing, police arrested Luciano C. Almarez, 23, for allegedly holding a kitchen knife to throats of his 27-year-old girlfriend and her 9-year-old daughter.

Police said Almarez threatened to kill the pair during the incident on the 2300 block of West Henry Street.

Almarez was booked into the Franklin County jail on suspicion of making felony death threats, violating a no contact order and outstanding warrants.

No injuries were reported.

Less than an hour after the call on West Henry Street, a 5-year-old boy ran into West Jay Street and suffered a head injury.

The boy ran between parked cars and was either struck by a passing vehicle or injured when he fell trying to avoid being hit, police said. The passing driver stopped and talked to police.

He was flown to Harborview in Seattle to be treated. His condition was not immediately available.

Sean S. McClintock also suffered a head injury as he was longboarding on Road 44 near Riverhill Drive, police said.

McClintock apparently got in front of a white car, possibly a new four-door sedan, and the passenger reached out and shoved McClintock off the longboard, police said. He hit his head on the street.

A witnesses called 911, and McClintock was rushed to a local hospital for surgery. He is in critical condition at Kadlec Regional Medical Center in Richland.

Police have not yet identified suspects in the case

Anyone with information on the case involving McClintock is asked to called Pasco police at 509-545-3421 or 545-3510.
