Suspect in Custody After Stabbing in Pullman

Around 5:02pm on July 1, 2024, Pullman Police officers responded to the report of a citizen dispute at Sunset Mart on SE Bishop Boulevard, where multiple people were fighting in the parking lot, and one male subject was armed with a knife.

Upon investigation, officers learned that the parties were known to one another, and that the fight was related to a dispute originating on social media. A 22-year old Moscow resident was transported to Pullman Regional Hospital by personal vehicle, and later air-lifted to Spokane, for treatment of injuries sustained during the altercation. He is expected to be released from the hospital today.

Pullman Police located and arrested 38-year old Pullman resident Cesar Marmolejos for Assault 1st Degree. He was booked into the Whitman County Jail in Colfax. The incident remains under investigation.
