Gas station where a teen is accused of pulling a knife on another teen

PULLMAN, Wash. — A teenager was hurt in a stabbing at a gas station in Pullman early Sunday. The suspect eventually turned himself in.

The stabbing was reported at 2:11 a.m. at 770 N. Grand, an ExxonMobile gas station.

The 17-year-old victim was reportedly stabbed several times by a 15-year-old with a pocketknife. They were near some apartments across the street from the gas station. The victim and another person walked to the gas station to ask for help – the teenager was covered in blood, and the station employee helped by covering the wounds with paper towels. He was eventually transported to Pullman Regional Hospital, where they stabilized him and confirmed that the injuries were not life-threatening.

The 15-year-old suspect called Whitcom and arranged to turn himself in. He was booked into Martin Hall on a charge of second-degree assault.

Pullman Police reported that they found the pocketknife near the scene of the crime, and that the two teenagers knew each other prior to their fight.
