A man from Kennewick is recovering after having his throat slashed with a knife during a fight in the parking lot of the Heatherstone Apartments off 10th Ave.

The victim was being visited by Evan Strother (51 years old) on Saturday when a fight broke out between the men.

The fight continued in the parking lot of the apartments and Stother grabbed a knife. He slashed the victims throat and then drove off in his car, according to reports.

A third person helped the victim and drove him to Trios Hospital where doctors managed to close the wound.

Even Strother was found later that day by police at his house located on Crestview Avenue and arrested him on investigative hold for first-degree assault.

The police are asking if anyone has any information about this case, call 509-628-0333 or the Tri-Cities Crime Stoppers at 509-586-8477.
