Warner Assault Investigation Update

PULLMAN – As a result of Pullman Police detectives attempts to locate him, John "Matt" Cabanos-Soriano (22-years-old, birth date 09/07/90) surrendered himself to investigators at the Pullman Police Department at about 2:20 am this morning. After being booked on a charge of Assault First Degree, Cabanos-Soriano was interviewed by detectives and then transported to the Whitman County Jail.

At about 9:20 am, Robert D. Bean (22-years-old, birth date 06/05/90) appeared at the Whitman County Sheriff's office in Colfax to turn himself in. He was arrested there by Pullman detectives and booked into Whitman County Jail on a charge of Assault First Degree. Both Cabanos-Soriano and Bean will likely appear before a judge at Whitman County Superior Court sometime today.

Although all suspects have been arrested, the investigation continues with Pullman Police detectives interviewing known witnesses and seeking additional witnesses and personal video of the assault. Investigators are still sorting out the events that transpired prior to, and during, the assault and the culpability of each suspect. Anyone who witnessed the assault, or is aware of a personal video of the assault, is asked to contact the Pullman Police Department at (509) 334-0802.
